Chinhoyi Caves

 One day in Zimbabwe, Paul wasn't preaching anywhere, so we seized the opportunity to go explore some caves not too from our nursing home accommodation.  It was so unique.  We were let loose, with no guide at all, to descend some steep steps into the earth.  We could see light ahead though, so wondered what we would find. 
 We had heard there was water in it, but enough to scuba dive in?!?! 

 Yes!  The water there is at least 315 feet deep, and a startling shade of blue.  It was awesome.  Timmy thought the great acoustics deserved a song so he started up his bass rumble, and we enjoyed the echoes.
 Joshua's camera can take underwater pictures and his caught the blueness of the water, whereas mine just looks black. 
 To get to the water, we climbed down a long tunnel completely through rock, and then came out at the water's edge.  We could look up and see the sky overhead, and caves in front of us, full of water and with bats squeaking from deeper inside. 
  
I found it a hard place to capture on film so just stick The Blue Grotto of Zimbabwe on your bucket list to go see, and you'll understand. 
 
"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."
Psalms 24:1
 
"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hast formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."
Psalms 90:2

  1. Ah, such bravery you all have...my fearlessness at being outside in my neighborhood after dark suddenly pales in comparison! Love all the Zimbabwe pics. Don't think I'd like to be there in real life, so I enjoy the armchair travel instead (which helps with the inevitable claustrophobia of some dark underground passageway)!
