Blue John

Here are a few pictures we’ve taken during our impromptu hiatus…..

Here’s Toddy walking home after a hard day’s adventuring.

Starlings taking advantage of the goodies we’ve been putting out now the nights are drawing in.

Not the pace for anyone who gets claustrophobic, Speedwell Cavern in Castleton.

Deep inside one very big hill!

We love this stone, Blue John and Castleton is the only place it’s ever been found.

Quite a bit here for a bracelet or too. This is inside Treak Cliff Cavern.

It’s just a shame we left the pick axe in the boot!

Stalactites everywhere, looks like a scene out of Alien!

Close up of these weird looking things. We can’t wait to go back and see one of the other four caverns, Blue John Cavern but we need to give the legs a rest first!

Wow!! What great pictures! Your garden is lovely. I don't know about the cavern. It looks pretty narrow!! Have a great weekend!

Love the cat pic of course. He looks like he has a real purpose in mind!

Speedwqell cavern, I remember it only too well....I am claustrophobic! Two visits was more than enough for my lifetime! heh
