Thursday July 27th

Today heading out to the home of the Black Opal Lightning Ridge! 

Lunch stop at 2828 Cafe Gulargambone. Then onto Coonamble  through Walgett, arrive in Lightning Ridge and check in, now quickly off  for our first happy hour, we set up our chairs, table and cheese platter under a shady tree, cheers seems strange for the park being full with about 350 people no one else set up! We look over and the shed is full of laughing people so off we head and bush poet duo Mel and Susie are entertaining the crowd! Great show wandering back we see a crowd of people under a sign in a tree and decide to throw on a scarf and catch the bus into club for dinner.
