A change is as good as a holiday

For a change, this Thursday we drove to Tuross Head and had lunch with the Turossians at the Tuross Head Country Club.

Tuross Head is a small tightly-knit community of perhaps 2,000 people who are surrounded by water on three sides: Coila Lake on one, Tuross Lake on the other, and the mighty South Pacific out front.

It has everything the Turossians need: a small shopping centre, several cafés and restaurants, a tavern, a club, even a doctor who performs head surgery.

Not that the locals need him much: having settled in this glorious spot, they've already shown they have their heads screwed on the right way.
