This is our last day!! Again a warm sunny morning. Our first stop today was the Jinderra Pioneer Museum. This is housed in what was originally the General Store and contained an incredible variety of historic items. Outside were a number of other buildings including a slab hut and a collection of farm equipment.
|Not sure what Mike was on this morning, perhaps he is planning on flying home although I don't remember him buying a broom in Tumut|

From Jinderra we travelled to All Saints Winery in Corowa for lunch. Lunch was excellent however Dale caused a stir when he decided it was one meal to many and spent the time wandering around the estate gardens then taking a snooze under a shady tree. A number of members were concerned but all was well.

After lunch we visited Max’s Motor Museum in Corowa. The highlight of this visit, apart from the wide variety of cars on display, was the ritual starting of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine. It doesn’t matter how many times you see one of these magnificent monsters up close, the noise and smoke is always spectacular.

From Max’s the route took us via Rutherglen, Chiltern and Barnawatha to Albury and tonight’s final dinner. Tonight we say a final good-bye as most are planning on leaving early for the long trip home. As we are in a modern this is not a problem. It has been such a wonderful tour and rally. We have seen and done so much. Many thanks to all involved.
