A few days ago, Spence and I did something that we’d never done in 24+ years together. We went panning at a gem mine. And I’ve got the pictures to prove it.
We paid $10 for a bucket of “sand” (though we could see some crystals peeking through) and a little spade. Directed down to the waterfalls, next to an old mill, was the panning area.
By the end of our experience which was truly enjoyable, we got quite a haul including some really gorgeous crystals.
Once rinsed and all debris removed, here is our treasure! Fun, sun and a bag of gems for $10. Memory of good times with my guy = priceless.
