Part 14 In the Caves

Hey Gang,
Sorry to leave you in the dark but not as in the dark as the cave tour we took. 

We were given brief instructions on what we could bring and things we couldn’t.  Cameras and vid cameras were allowed but no flash.  It was explained the reason why is not because of the caves but because when the flash goes off people were complaining they got blinded.   OH BOY! 

  After instructions it was a descent down 280 steps.  Most everyone in the crowd was ooing and awing and just having a good time.  At the bottom of the stairs it opened into a fairly large room.  The room was set up with benches.  The guide made everyone sit down and take a break to get acclimated to the cave.

Paul nudged me and said Carey I am not well, not feeling good.  I felt so bad for him.  He said go on with out me and told one of the guides he needed to get out.  They brought him to the surface to wait while Ruth and I finished the tour.

Paul still wasn’t sure what caused him to feel ill.  Was it the rapid descent or his mind racing with what if it did cave in like I said.   Me and my big mouth.

One little boy though was having the time of his life.  He kept asking where is Batman?  When a real bat flew around over head instead of freaking he laughed and shouted there’s Batman.  What a sport.

I have been in MANY caves and never tire of seeing the beauty underground.  You would think its nothing but dirt and mud, not at all.  Each cave is unique and awesome, it is something everyone should see.  

That’s all for this post.  Enjoy the photos.

Gotta GoGo!!
