FRIDAY 9 JULY GEMTREE
It is so nice to wake up “in the bush”, as opposed to the urban-ness of the conventional caravan park. So far, I really love this place.
We had a camp-based day.
John made a shaker stand for the gem sieve – very clever – and a big sieve tray, like we saw at Rubyvale. The materials were bought in Alice Springs, before we left there. He felt a great sense of achievement. Looks like we will be getting serious about these gemstones!
I watched his work, and read.
I made steak and kidney stew for tea, with suet dumplings (from a suet mix packet) – much to John’s delight.
