Ooh, a Sunday post! When Lydia and I were planning our trip to Bermuda the one thing we both knew we *had* to do was see the crystal caves. If you know me well, then it’s probably no surprise to you that I had a pretty killer rock collection when I was a kid. So getting to see the crystal caves was a pretty amazing experience for me… possibly my favorite part of the entire trip!
Our tour guide, Terrence, was fantastic. Patient, full of knowledge, and also very funny. The crystal caves were actually discovered back in 1907 by two teenage boys who were playing cricket. They went looking for a ball and found the entrance. They climbed all the way down (130 feet), went for a swim, and climbed back out. Pretty incredible. Another interesting thing to note is that the crystals grow very, very slowly… just one cubic inch per hundred years.
Also… a sizing note on the shorts. They run rather large. I usually wear a size 28 in jeans but size up to a 29 or 30 in shorts… for these, I got a 28 and they were a little loose.
