We've reached our destination. The opal town of Lightning Ridge. If other opal towns we have visited are anything to go by this will be an odd place. We are going to spend 4 days here before going back home. Let's go see.
Royal Hotel Durban South Africa
I have updated the Royal Collection at last! We now have 130 Royals including a recent contribution of 10 Royal Hotels from South Africa.
I have seen 96 of the Royals myself, just a few more to go to reach 100.
We spent one night at Lawson, where the daffodils were beginning to bloom, to unpack the van then headed out to Clandulla where as expected the wattle welcomed us home.
That's the end of this trip, I hope to retire before we set off again.
We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop. That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town. A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
