Mid-west run, day 4

Today we drove from Dongara to Dalwallinu. The weather wasn’t as hot as expected and most cars ran well with one exception – and that wasn’t mine (The Fowlers had manifold gasket and starter motor problems).
We back-tracked eastwards out to Mingenew again, then via Morawa, Perenjori and Wubin to Dalwallinu. We met with Horace & Jean in Morawa and they told us of a spot near Perenjori with some great wreath flowers in an old gravel pit – so we called in there on the way.
At Wubin, we visited the Wheat Bin Museum with a great display of wheat handling history in a 1939 wheat bin, plus old cars, tractors and other assorted stuff.
We stayed in The Old Convent guest house in Dalwallinu – except a few couples got “dongas” – which wasn’t all bad because you got your own en-suite. Before dinner, we were taken by mini-bus into town to watch a live performance by a keyboard and trumpet duo in the town amphitheatre (which was very good).
Home tomorrow.
