Ceneca Cavern

After our wet exploration at Black Water Falls, we decided to head on to Ceneca Cavern.  The kids were very excited to see the cave.  ON road trips, you can never expect that everything will turn out perfectly.  As we were  driving, our GPS took us to a different route and we ended up in this plantation area.  

We saw a sign that  cars are not allowed to pass by there so we turned around and heard "Glenda" (that's what  the kids named  our GPS lol) say her favorite  word when we are lost "recalculating".  My husband was frustrated because we only got  limited time to catch the last  tour.

When we   reached  our destination, the lady at the  gift shop told us that the  last one just left.  So we drove all the way from Black Water Falls to Ceneca Cavern  just to see the gift shop haha.  Nevertheless, we   at least busied ourselves looking at these
beautiful  rocks and minerals for sale at the  gift shop.
So that was the big disappointment  of our road trip, not being able to see the Cave.
We should have  came here first and then hit the  Black Water Falls on the way home.
Oh well, there is always next time.  At least now, we know what to do.

I realized  by looking at the photos with my kids that, in few more years, they will be taller than me wahhh.  Our neighbor said that everyone is taller than me, argghhh.  Oh well, my father used to tell me "Small but Terrible" so it's okay to be small lol.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  6. Your kids give me a glimpse of what my two little ones will be like years from now. :-) About the post, you may have missed the tour but you got to marvel at those beautiful stones. I guess it was still a good trip after all.

  7. That rose quartz stone is beautiful-don't ask me why but I have always loved rose quartz! I certainly hope you make it back there soon to see the cave--and yeah-GPS units can take you in the wrong direction all too frequently!!

  8. So sorry about getting lost though, but sounds like you guys still had a wonderful time. I hear you with the height. I am sure my kids will be taller than me by the time they reach 10. LOL! :)

  9. Me and my husband can also relate that "recalculating" of GPS. It's frustrated, I agree. Anyway, I hope you get to that cave next time. :)

  15. Your kids are really smart, they even thought of a name for the GPS. Where did they got that name Glenda? LOL. It's okay, your kids still had fun. There will always be another day for you to travel.

  16. My kids and I are addicted to stone, gem stones and especially Geodes!! We love them and are constantly trying to find new and different ones all the time. I have a gem/stone book and we are trying to get as many as we can from it! Looks like you all had a blast!

  19. I am back here again mommy... this reminds me of our trip to South Dakota before to the Mammoth Site and they had some of these rocks as well and bought some for Harley. We also saw a huge display of different types of rocks in different colors and shapes in Creede, Colorado and it was just absolutely beautiful. Lovely shots, mommy Rose.
