25th September 2018: with Snablet, Roz and Tav

An impromptu trip after Snablet’s enquiry “are we doing anything tonight?” following up some beer fuelled conversation we’d had on Saturday evening at the Hidden Earth conference in Churchill.

We sort-of expected the sand dig to be under water or, at least, wet following the heavy rain that fell over the last weekend, it was neither, so we set to work. Snablet and Tav rotated the digging and filling buckets, as one overheated the other took over, Roz was taking the filled buckets and loading the skip, I was hauling the skip up the slope and emptying the contents. It was a pleasant, evenly paced session with plenty of banter.

After the digging session the evening was rounded off with a trip to the Hunter’s. Snablet is returning to New Zealand on Thursday. A fine time was had by all.
