Mining tour

Ive been pretty focused on fashion of late & this is definitely not one of my regular out fits.
My husband works as an electrician in an underground coal mine & recently took me on a tour underground.
I got to wear gumboots, safety glasses, a hard hat & a self rescuer(in case I needed oxygen to escape the mine)
You cant take electronic devices underground so I dont have any other pics to share.
I thought I might be a bit scared but surprisingly I wasn't.
It was very interesting seeing the whole process & checking out some of the machinery they use, now I know what the dream guy is talking about when he is telling me about his day!!!

All in all, if the opportunity arose, I would highly recommend you take a tour, you will have a new appreciation for the danger our miners face & the fact that they are willing to get so dirty to earn a wage

Have you ever been in an underground mine?

Yes Trish, I have been underground when I worked at Angus Place! I am glad I went, I have a lot of respect for the men who go into the coal mines every day. I wasn't scared but certainly am not in a hurry to ever go back down there!!
