What a lovely weekend gold panning.
It had been raining heavily on Friday night, so by Saturday morning the rivers were in spate a little, but we weren’t going to let that stop us. It was great to meet up with everyone.
The midges were about and I got about eleven bites on my face. I found a few small flecks of gold and one nice little flake. We had a lovely indian meal on the Saturday evening. It was buffet night, so you could eat as little or as much as you wanted.
Sunday was a nice day. The rivers were still up, but the weather was mild. I again found a few small flecks of gold and one nice little flake.
On Monday there were clear blue skies and the weather was lovely and warm. I found a few small flecks of gold and decided to collect small garnets too.
For me, Monday was more about relaxing, taking pictures and enjoying the sunshine.
I managed to get some great shots with my camera. I hope you like the piccies below:
