Monday 6th Jan Doing "The Windows"

We started the day with a sheep shearing lesson which was an incredible experience. Number one has a new meaning now, Catherine only managed a number four!  Poor sheep.  Then Loretta said we were " doing the windows" . I imagined a day spent on ladders with a wet cloth, but instead we explored old gold mining tunnels, which had windows cut into the tunnel side. It was amazing that these miles of tunnels are left open access.

Catherine gets to work shearing!

A very pleasant evening of fishing

The sun goes down as we arrive back to the harbour.  Our new RAB jackets have been used for the first time today!
