6/29/01: We were up early for a sunrise walk, of about an hour and a half. After breakfast at the dugout, we made several calls, and then we were off to the Laundromat to wash clothes. While the machines did the work, we spent our time in the camper classifying and cataloging our opal purchases. With the laundry done, we viewed another parcel, no sale.
At the dugout, we made some sandwiches, stopped at a local shop to talk “opals”, bought a didgeridoo, and went noodling. Feeling quite satisfied, headed to the dugout, via “The Opal Cutter” and I picked out a sweet little gift (what else but opal, hand carved by Piet) from their delightful shop (a birthday present). Piet and Barb have such a lovely shop…a must see!
We were invited to join 2 couples at the Chinese restaurant for dinner. After filling ourselves, we declined more entertainment, and retired to the dugout.
