The gold panning

The Gold panning.
I could hear the swish of rocks and water in other people’s pans as I walked up to the path for gold panning at Shantytown. I shivered in my coat, there was a cold wind blowing. I picked up my pan and dipped it in the cold, freezing water. When I pulled it out, shook it around and saw something shining inside, I knew it was gold.
