Abseiling at home ed

what an awesome day!! Our home ed group went out to the honeycomb caves which is inland from Deloraine. A spectacular spot that has a maze of underground waterways and caves that would rival any rabbit warren. Beren decided to try abseiling and gave it two attempts but decided about 2mtrs down that it wasn't for him. Braver than me cos I couldn't have done it at all. Heaps of kids did though and just as much fun was had 'crater climbing' too.

About half did some caving but again we opted out of that one as neither of the kids wanted to go without me and I was not up for it I am afraid!

The views from here were beautiful as it is at the foothills of the Great Western Tiers, we even spotted a small amount of snow on the western end of the tiers when we were driving up.  Mind you the day was glorious and about 22degrees.  Just perfect!

okay, not exactly wordless wednesday here but see some more that might have less chatter here LOL
