Our grandson, Little Aussie, has been to visit - always a delight!
On Day 1, Aussie brought up the subject of caves.
How long ago cavemen lived in caves,
And who lived in caves now?
And that Aussie has never seen a cave.
And when can we go and see a cave??
Saturday found us here, at the Tamborine Mountain Glow-worm caves,
artificial, man-made caves, created to provide a home for a declining population of these fascinating little sparklers.
Photography was not allowed, but I found these pictures on their web-site.
It was incredibly dark in there, until we got to the glow-worms, but Little Aussie was brave and did not complain.
He appeared to be most impressed by the whole experience.
Near the caves was this pretty lake with fountain and ducks..
And here are the three guys:
Mr Cardinal, our Sydneysider Son, and Little Aussie:
Back home, we made the usual rustic cake..
and looked around our garden for caves ...
Alas, no satisfactory caves were to be had,
but Aussie enjoyed playing with the lavender.
My new Peace rose has had its first bloom.
I hope it turns out to be symbolic.
