Caving Margaret River 2008

Posted on 13 Feb 2008 | 0 comments

With Jon away, Jude joins Alex, Eve and Quentin on a trip with Ian and Cameron to the caves in Margaret River. A fantastic weekend with a big tiger snake in our hut feasting on the rats, I am happy we slept outside under the stars!

We visit 5 caves: Bridal, Dingo and I forgot the other names. Bridal was the one with the abseil and big ascend. Dingo was the one where we entered through an awesome chimney and played around getting lost in and around the big boulders. So much fun! The last cave on the Sunday was the one with the creek flowing through which meant on our knees through the mud and even at one point on our bellies!
