After that I was inspired and in close proximity to the public noodling site, to try my hand at finding opal
After that, I went back into town, but instead of going immediately back to shower (mining = dirty) I stopped in an opal shop. After a few minutes inside I realized I had brought along a friend from the rock pile... A 3inch long cockroach with extra desert flare (antenna, legs, and other extras, basically cockroach 'bling'). Once that was taken care of, I commenced operation: Buy Opals for Mom. Note: Jewelry Shopping is hard. I did nothing but look the rest of the day, getting an idea of prices all over town, and styles/choices I had available.
Once all the shops had closed, I went to get some dinner at the highly recommended Italian restaurant. It was amazing. I have never had pizza like that. I ended up going back for every other meal in Coober Pedy to that same shop.
