THURSDAY 2 SEPTEMBER COOBER PEDY
Today was a hot day, and a fairly quiet one for us.
We read in the morning.
After lunch, walked around town, browsing in a number of shops.
I went to the Underground Book Shop, where I found and bought, of all things, the latest edition of the Lonely Planet Guide to Tasmania.
John bought two triplet opals, with nice colour, for $50. Coober Pedy opal has a milky white background, with colour flashes.
We spent some time in the Desert Cave Hotel, wandering about and reading the information in their underground corridors – interesting. It is a rather upmarket place.
We bought fish and chips for tea. Whilst out, John filled Truck – 84cpl.
John’s daughter phoned. They discussed the ceremony to do with her qualification as a lawyer. John feels he should try to attend this, but she did not seem all that keen.
John played computer games till 3.30am.
