The auto electrical people there were very good but it took all afternoon to solve the problem and only after fitting 2 new brake units did they come up with a solution. In the mean time as Lynn was testing the brakes he backed into a low wall between their property and the one next door and managed to wreck a water container and its carrier. The container was about to be thrown out anyway as it was very brittle ( sun affected). The carrier was beyond repair.
Because it took all afternoon to fix we opted to stay in a caravan park for the night rather than go looking for a free camp. It also gave me a chance to catch up on some washing and Lynn topped the water tanks up.
From Bunbury we went to Collie where we stopped up on groceries and posted a parcel to Lisa with 4 dresses that I had made for the twins and 2 blankets that I had made from polar fleece and edged with patchwork binding and appliqued some butterflies etc on to them.

This was beginning of our trip around the rock country to places that our friends from Mandurah had recommended. We were heading in an easterly direction but taking a bit of a loop to pick up the various spots.
At Narrogin we stopped at the Info centre and got lots of information about the local area before heading off to Yornaning Dam. This delightful place was quite pretty but the Flies were dreadful, ( time of the year).
