Marty and I did some more digging today. It's become so deep that we've had to find a new plank to cross through! This one spans the whole area. It's a bit spooky to stand on, but hopefully it won't be for much longer. We're really getting back into it!
We dug out around the edges of the walls (the foundation rocks) and eventually hit dirt. We moved in to the middle of the rooms and found there were holes with buried treasure in them! Ok, mostly rubble, but the occasional treasure. 2 more coins were found - a 1900 penny and a 1900 half penny.. and this amazing bottle!
It says "W & J. Waters" on one side and "Stawell" on the other! A local bottle! I'm really surprised I didn't break it with the shovel when I was digging it out. :)
It's good to be doing something with "those rooms" again.
Until next time.
