fossickers noodling through the mullock

Admittedly one of the activities that we decided to pass on, many locals and tourists spend the day fossicking through the heaps of discarded mullock ( rubble ) left by the commercial opal mines looking for pieces of opal that may have been overlooked. This is called noodling.

Serious noodlers have a noodling machine which sifts and sorts the mullock in a darkroom, using ultraviolet light to highlight the pieces of opal.

Some things you just could not make up!

The CP golf course has no greenery at all, so I suspect that their bunker shots are of an extremely high standard.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
