THURSDAY 18 MAY RUBYVALE
I took advantage of the good weather to do the washing.
Then we set out, taking our solo traveller R with us, to sieve a barrow of wash at the Miners Cottage. But the man was away in Rockhampton. So we went to the Heritage instead and sieved a bucket each. We did alright, getting four cutters.
Took all our findings from the time here, to J at Old Micks. She found we had, overall, ten cutters, all small, which we left with her to be cut. We were to phone her at the end of the month, to arrange COD delivery.
John washed Truck. We packed up as much as we could. It was a good thing that we did, because it rained during the night, and the mud came back!
Tea was fries, with flathead for John and ray (Qld flake!) for me.
We were finding it hard to leave Rubyvale – it is a good-feeling place.
