Apologies for the long absence. I have been having some Internet connection troubles, a broken card reader and just some general ‘Blogger’s block’.
We went to visit my folks a week or so ago. My parents have started a new hobby of gem collecting so they took us to an abandoned diamond mine not too far from our house. As you can see it was quite something to look at. A massive hole in the ground with stunning turquoise water (which I’m sure must be pretty darn toxic to be that colour). We had a lovely time picking up pretty little rocks. I think we found quite a bit of rose quarts and jasper.
