Day 5

Not green beer, but stalactites, stalagmites, columns, shawls, corals, and helictites. These were the words of the day on March 17 when we visited the magnificent Jenolan caves, the oldest dated show caves in the world. Following morning tea after our arrival at the caves, we took a self-guided tour of the majestic open caverns and passed by a beautiful blue lake surrounded by lush foliage. After a hearty lunch provided by our hosts, they guided us on a tour of the Orient Cave, one of the ten or eleven caves open for tours. We were treated with another delight when we stopped at Jenolan Cottages on our way back home to be entertained by a mob of kangaroos feeding in a field near a playground. Once "home" I found that my gracious host had replenished my chocolates, Elsa is well, happy, and waiting for her next find while my chocolates are securely stashed away.
