We had great fun in Sapphire… we cheated and went to the tourist traps that have buckets of rocks to process , had great fun and found couple of nice pieces . Spent last night in Rockhampton , a big town/city now a days even the kids noticed the traffic lights. We were going to camp at Byfield National Park (will make it a day trip instead ) time is running out and we want to take the kids to Great Keppel Island for a treat…. glass bottom boat and snorkeling we have two very excited wombles . Our camp site for the next 4 nights is beside the beach at Yeppoon . Had a game of cricket this afternoon before a skudding little cell rain dump on us ,the first rain for the holiday !!!
