We went to Blanchard Springs Caverns in Blanchard Springs, AR, before heading home on Thursday.  Here are some pictures:This is my attempt to catch a scene in the dark cave.  Lovely and blurry.

My husband's attempt.  

Brown Bat.  It was so exciting seeing this bat, why I don't know?  My husband wasn't able to get a picture of a pile of bats.  There was probably 10 or 12 in a pile.  R took a plush bat home as a souvenir.   I think she really likes bats because they eat up to 3,000 mosquitos a night.  I think that impressed her actually.

We only have pictures of the Caverns, because I forgot to take them any other time.  The Ozark Folk Center (Mountain View, AR) had good photo ops, too.  I didn't feel good so I was doing good just making it through.....I got a drop spindle though!!  I am worried about using the wool that came with it since I am allergic to it.  I am going to see if I can order cotton from somewhere.

That looks like it would have been a lot of fun.

I think bats are adorable. When I was a kid, my cat had dragged a small fruit bat into our house. He crawled out from underneath our entertainment center... he was really cute.
