We’re Back!! A successful tour of Gawler pubs … again.

Outside the Golden Fleece Hotel

As we did some seven years ago we toured a selection of the Gawler pubs one Saturday in August 2014, except this time we availed ourselves of the relatively new Northern Expressway. This ensured we arrived in plenty of time for a familiar game of tag with the winter weather. From a reasonable start it slipped into a persistent drizzle but rallied late in the day to ultimately allow sufficient times for a decent day of dance.

One person unlikely to forget the day is Ollie, on his first dance out and suffering from the usual case of nerves. His summing-up even before the day’s conclusion was “a great day”. He’ll be back.

Across the day’s dancing we enjoyed the ambience of the Overway Tavern, little changed since the fifties, the contemporary tones of the refurbished Golden Fleece and finally partook of great beers in another traditional front bar at the Prince Albert. In the latter we provided an impromptu morris workshop to an also impromptu mixed side of revellers late from the Barossa. The day was topped off by our descent on the welcoming household of Liz and Andrew for a soup and samosa soiree.
