A visit to Waitomo, New Zealand for a fun day of caving.

Paying utmost attention for the safety briefing before the abseil down.

Down into the abyss. At ~100metres it is the world's deepest commercial cave abseil.

Only one hand.

My sis bought me the trip for a birthday present.

Into the middle of the earth.

From left, Cassandra from California, me, my sister Victoria, and hubby Steve.

Almost at the bottom of the descent.

Ready for landing.

Sandwiches & Muffins for lunch before heading into the dark.

My 'Rocky' pose!

Jumping in the deep end.

Clambering up the two rocks faces. Took a bit of co-ordination, especially wearing gumboots!

Not for the claustrophobic!

Luckily the water level wasn't too high after recents rains.

Steve squeezing his 6 foot 4 frame through.

Glow worms.

At the end after 7 hours underground!

And back to the surface.
