A wedding country style

First stop Pinjarra to see the fat controller, but none in sight. Perhaps he has retired.
We heard about 3 trains in the night.
A stroll across the bridge revealed flowing water across the Weir. The area near the swing bridge & buildings are being renovated. No entry was permitted. As you can see the free camp area was very busy, always room for a few more campers. It's interesting how quiet the area is at 8 pm. The bar across the road had pie & skimpy night. Deborah had cooked our dinner so we had a quiet night in.

With the installation of a PC board to our hot water system we were able to have a hot shower on gas.

Next day we travelled to Goomalling caravan park, run by the council. There was a pool right next door & the entry fee was $2 pp. Very good value we thought. Shame the council had not got the message to the locals that the pool was open again as the days were hot here. 47 degrees Saturday.

There was a severe fire alert in the area.

When in Goomalling why not visit the Community Resource Centre/ Library

We headed off to the Konnongorring Hall where buses ferried the guests down the road to "The White Dam" for the wedding. There was a fire truck on hand in case of a fire on the property.

The country wedding of the newly weds went off without a hitch. It was 47 degrees in the sun. You guessed it we, the guests were all in the shade with bottles of cold water to stay hydrated.
Here are some of the pictures we took of Mr & Mrs Dew's wedding day. We were very honoured to be invited.

On the way back to Busselton we stopped off at Caversham for a cuppa on the roadside & a slice of country wedding cake.

Met up with Margot & Andrew for lunch at Pinelli Winery Restaurant for a lovely lunch & headed home along the SouthWest Highway. Arrived home safely.

Hi Vicki & Phil,
Certainly hot, hot, hot as the bride was one hot chickie.

As a consequence we are now adding the togs as part of the caravan kit.

Hope you too are out & about.

Cheers Deb & Ian

Ha, ha. Always take your togs!

What an adventure you had!
Lovely wedding photos. Bride looked wonderful as did her Mum.
Glad you survived the heat and are safely home. X

Thanks Wendy. It is always nice to be home. We managed a walk to see the sunset at the beach last night also.

Colleen looked as beautiful as a picture. Annette looked very classy, her hair had beautiful ringlets and her smile lit up the room. It was such a beautiful country location, we would not have missed the adventure. So happy to be part of such a special day. Oh & Dave, he looked dapper especially with those country western style boots over the top of his trousers.
