We spent 4 days at a caravan
park in Coober Pedy and one night by a dry river bed, waiting for a shock
absorber to arrive for the car, it was very hot (to be expected in the
middle of Australia) and we were lucky enough to park our caravan underneath
awnings that the caravan park had set up.
We had a try at noodling for
opals and found a few small specimins.
