Tried to get away for a dig on Sunday morning, but the weather was not cooperating. The rain just got heavier and heavier. Made it as far as “Wild Horse Mountain” and breakfast at “Hungry Jacks” before to deciding to call it quits.
Monday was fine weather, but my digging buddy was unavailable. Public holiday spent relaxing, is better than nothing.
Rained again on Monday night….. got to job site Tuesday morning and…. flooded. I was heartbroken.
Heartbroken might be a little bit strong of a word…..
I threw the gear into the vehicle…. and disappeared in a cloud of dust. Spent a hour waiting for an accident to clear on the highway, but soon enough, I was there. This is my inspiration for the post title. Shape of Queensland.
Rain helps with gold fossicking in so many ways…. it provides water to work the material. It makes the ground soft, I want to say that again…. soft. It’s so much easier than hard as concrete, ground. Anyone who has dug the ground at Warwick will know exactly what I mean. And it keeps the dust down.
Less than five hours gave me a nice little pile of gold pieces.
Safely home again. Till next time. Bye.
