Even though it was a beautiful day out, we chose to go underground for part of it. Ngarua Cave, to be precise. I normally thought of caves as being low places, but this one is at the top of Takaka Hill, of which I've spoken of before. It's pretty big, in that most of the time head room was of no concern to me. It's about 300 m long from entry to exit, which was the original entrance. This only happens as a guided tour, but it was quite reasonably priced, and excellent value for almost an hour. Then it was off to the beach.
In other news, we have news that our kitties are doing fine. (Thank you BRBE for special visit!) Cranky about the most rotten humans ever abandoning them, but mollified by catnip. I hear it's snowing in Calgary.
I wasn't sure how dark it would be. There are lights of course, but it's still a bit of a technical challenge to get the photos.
1. Linda found a friend!
14. We all agreed that while the moa bones were cool, this was the gills of an alien.
Plus Driftwood of the Day, of course. Can't deny you your fix. (Including ladybugs, which was a surprise.)
