Vaughan had been hosing himself down for a few minutes before I thought to grab the camera. I took a few shots, then spent ten minutes or more blasting thickly-caked mud from his shorts and shirt!
There was so much of it - amazing! He decided to have a shower after his hose-down. I'm happy to report he now looks like a boy again, not like a billabong bunyip! The waterhole is drying up and Vaughan is talking about looking for frogs in a different location. I'm not sure if that means he'll be more or less muddy tomorrow.
Nick came home for lunch yesterday and I asked if he felt ill because he looked quite yellow. His normal colour was restored after a shower - when much yellow dust was washed away. (There are different coloured layers beneath Yowah's red dirt, which become obvious in the fossicking and mining areas).
