Night 15 - Rubyvale

We headed west from our free camp (which was a great night) to Emerald. We stopped for lunch at McDonalds, gee the kids were excited....first take away on our trip!

Next stop Rubyvale, good old Rubyvale! This tiny little town is special to us. We were last here 10 years ago when we did a half trip around OZ. Little did I know that Craig bought my engagement ring from here, he then proposed on top of Uluru a month later. Who would have thought that 10 years later we would find ourselves here again, this time with three kids!

The town hasnt changed at all. Its a little sapphire mining town that basically has one street, the smallest post office you have ever seen, a pub, a tiny supermarket, cafe and about 10 gem stores. Everyone at our caravan park is here to strike it rich!

We are going fossicking tomorrow.....look out!
