Azzan was still wanting to go Thunderegg mining so we walked over to the office.
But it was 4pm and too late to go down the mine.
So the man suggested Azzan could do the lucky dip from the pile of cast off rocks from outside of the office.
He was very happy to do that so he took his bucket and went out to search.
He had it all sussed so didn’t take too long to choose his rocks.
When he came in the guy sorted them out and showed him which ones he could cut and Azzan chose the one he wanted opened.
He was very happy with the pretty quartz colours inside his egg.
We finally had to leave so we had time to pop in and visit Tim’s sister Jenny.
She was staying at Logan Village with her husband Ivor at his daughter’s place while they fix up their mobile home.
They live in it and travel around Australia.
Then it was 5pm and time to head off back to the city to find cousin Mary.
We followed the googlemap instructions on ly to get stuck again when the motorway entrance was closed – darn it!
So I pulled over and got out Bethel’s map book and found another route and finally found Mary, her daughter Jeanie & g’daughter Brittany at home waiting dinner for us.
We had a very enjoyable evening together.
It is so cool to be catching up and meeting all these cousins after so many years.
It has really made our trip worth so much more.
It was all too soon time to take the children back to Bethel and Ron’s so we wound our way back around the streets. This time with no misadventures.
