We decided to take a look in at the Portland Vintage Car Club Museum. A chap there told us they have had two days of 41oC.  They had everything from old cars, dodges and pontiacs to trams, fuel bozers, large signs like shell, caltex, etc.  We enjoyed seeing it all.  There is a nice shopping centre here.  We haven't been here for eleven years and it has gone ahead with new houses and buildings.They even have a Duck Inn Kafe.  We didn't go to Cape Bridgewater where there is a seal colony and surf. Dutton Van Park looks like it has been abanded.  Where we stayed, a family park, was very friendly indeed.  We set off for Warrnambool. Saw horses and shetland ponies.  Passed Allestree Beach which has a Conference Centre and Holiday Units and van park further on.  Then came Narrawong Beach.  Around here were milking cows. Passed Tynedarra.  Next on our list was Port Fairy.  Woolsthorpe was on the left.  Passed yet another wind farm which generates electricity.  Went from 4 to 24 of them.  Passed Yambuck Beach Camp Ground on the righ and it was 5 k's to the Lake. The rugged "Crags" were 3k on gravel road out to the sea to view them.  We even had a Fingerboard Road. Port Fairy was setting up for a Folk Festival, big tents, even had a room for performers to report to.  We had lunch under the shade of trees. "Dogs" are not allowed at Port Fairy but the van park takes them. Funny one that? It has a day spa, shops, sea scouts and very big tall pine trees.  Griffins Island is off Port Fairy.  Rolled along over the Moyne River.  Here they were playing golf on sand dunes. Next we saw more dairy cows.  Killarney has a beach, cottages, houses and Budget Chain Motel.  Took the wrong turn and ended up at Koroit which had shops and houses and a nursery on top of the hill. It holds an Irish Festival yearly. They grow potatoes here.
