Underground Swimming Hole

Whew, it was hot and sweaty but it was worth it. This morning we hiked to the ancient Chamorro Village-Pagat and its limestone cave complete with a freshwater underground pool. The five Herron-Moon’s led by our trusty hiking guides Don Antrobus and his 3 year old daughter, Paige ventured through the rugged limestone forest down a steep trail to the village and cave. Once we got to the cave, Elli and I were a little apprehensive to climb down into the dark slippery cave, but Alex, Don and Wally eagerly led the way. We headed down the slippery trail to the first little pool (about 2 feet deep) linked to the main cave and pool by a tight channel. The channel felt a little like spulunking when climbing through it. We swam into the the main cave and hung out into the cave/pool (4 to 8 feet deep) taking turns holding the flashlights and swimming around. It was definitely a one of kind hike!!

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near
    future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your blog.
    It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thanks
