Age article about goldfields (Sept 2006)

Yes I'm still alive, just haven't been posting as there hasn't been much new to say. Work has been so busy and everything Amherst has been on hold until we visit in a month.

In the meantime, one interesting thing came my way thanks to Dave's Mum. This newspaper article talks about the goldfields in Victoria, and the photo is taken at the Quartz reef outcrop in Amherst. Our place is in Amherst and we have lots of quartz stones on our block - although nothing as glamorous as in this photo. But, it must be quite close by as Amherst isn't that big. I shall have to get hold of the book to find out exactly where it is. I really can't wait to get back there, it's been too long.
