Friday

Yesterday we took advantage of Tommy having a Friday off in the school holidays and went to explore some more of our beautiful state.


We headed to The Mole Creek Caves, which is about an hours drive from where we live, Tom and I have explored the caves before and knew the children were at a great age to really enjoy the experience as much as we have. There are three different Cave tours to chose from, and we chose the Marakoopa Caves as they had glow worms which we knew the children would love.

It was an icy day, so it was perfect for rugging up and heading out, the walk into the caves is just as beautiful as the caves themselves, and if you're quiet enough you're bound to see a Kangaroo or two.







Inside the caves is 9 degrees Celsius all year round, and without the icy winds from outside it wasn't too cold at all. 
There are only certain areas you can take photos in the caves, as there are glow worms and other small insects that don't appreciate the flash as they live in the dark and it can be quiet a shock!


The tour is very interesting, learning about the stalagmites and stalactites, finding fossils prints of corral from hundreds of thousands of years ago and hearing about how the caves were first discovered by two young boys playing in the bush many years ago.




After the Caves we headed to the Chudleigh Honey Farm, which has ever flavor of honey you could ever think of, chocolate, chilli, walnut, strawberry, you name it they have it. You can sample over 50 different flavors!

They have a great information room which has a huge glass bee hive, showing the bees busy at work making honey, there is also lots of information about the life cycle of bees, different types of hives, and so much more, they really are interesting little creatures.






They also have every bee item you could think of, candles, toys, dresses, lunch boxes and even pajamas! 


We had to head back home early afternoon as the children had swimming classes, but it was lovely to spend the best part of the day with Tom and the children learning about the caves and bees.

I'm finding myself leaving my 'big' camera at home more often these days, with snacks, drinks, jackets and more, I'm finding it hard to add to the amount of things I lug around.

Perhaps I'll make more of an effort this week, I'll let you know how I go.
