6/21/00: Breakfast at “The Last Resort”.  10:00 appointment with Tony Wong to see opal.    Possibility…but no purchase made.  To the bank to cash more travelers checks, and off to do laundry.  While I washed clothes, Steve met with Bosco (miner) who had a small parcel.  Met Nick met us at the laundry to look at another parcel…No sale.  Lunch at “The Last Resort with miner Nick.  Met Deiter and Lorraine  from “The Opal Cave”.  Stopped at “The Opal Cutter” to set a time for dinner that evening  –  7:00 P.M.  Steve went to the bank to pick up the rest of our money for opals.  I walked to the Opal Cave to determine a time to look at their rough parcel that was for sale.  Set for 11:00 A.M. on Friday.  Back to dugout to clean up and put away the laundry.  Showered up…and gave up on being a tourist for a few hours!  Dinner at the Lamont’s home for Kangaroo!!!!!  Delicious and tastes like beef…  Walked to “Budget” to confirm the vehicle rental for Thursday.
