The Wandering Tops

The Wandering Tops

13 April, 2013


You know your heading into a big town when you pass a bill board telling you that there are 3 McDonalds in town.  We have passed through Tamworth before but never had time to look around. We heard about the country music festival, so we decided to spend 2 days and check out Tamworth and after the first day the town had a nice feel about it so decided to stay for 4 days.

Whilst in Tamworth a Variety Club of Victoria scheduled a night stop and we were entertained with lots of sirens and bash cars including a Fire Truck which had been decked out with cappuccino machine and heaps of other 'surprises'.  One big surprise Hels experienced in the morning they departed was a huge tough looking Fireman dressed in a ladies dress and a blue bow which was stuck to his bald head!  The make up looked as though he may have applied himself but she still told him he looked lovely - to which he did a little curtsey!   We also attended the Taste Tamworth Festival which included local businesses displaying and encouraging sampling of their products including wines, cheeses, various foods etc.  One thing we noticed was they had plenty of activities for the kids including face painting and giving them the opportunity to cook a hamburger or a pizza.  They all had little chef hats with their names on and all looked pretty happy to show off their cooking expertise!

Some Variety Cars with the service truck, must have had a whole workshop in the back.

Now that's one big Golden 'Geeetar'

Had a chat with Smoky Dawson one night.
As the nights are getting quite cold now and our wardrobe doesn't include many warm clothes we decided to head to Vinnies and Hels picked up a warm coat so that we can continue south ready for the cooler, no cold, weather.  Now with warmer clothes on board we are ready to head further south ..........
