Yesterday the kids took their breakfast things to the camp kitchen and joined their friends for their first meal of the day. I think they were hoping for the same today, but it was just us. Nice though.Again, mostly chilling out today, though we did take a quick trip into town to the Crystal Caves. The kids have taken a real shine to all things rocks, mineral and gemstone. This tourist spot had some pretty amazing things to see, and set out in a fun way for the kids.It wasn’t quite so easy for those a bit taller.There were lots of different kinds of crystals, rocks, minerals and gemstones to look at. Amazing really.This fountain is made from rose quartz. Lots and lots of rose quartz.Here it is again without the flash on, so you can see the light coming through the quartz.And this was the major attraction in the ‘caves’ – a giant amethyst geode – the Empress of Uruguay. She was amazing!Here’s a few more great looking exhibits. This one probably has to be my favourite out of the crystals. Amazing the shape that they form.And look at the patterns in this one.I also tend to be drawn to all blue stones… I think blue must secretly be my favourite colour (I always tell the kids rainbow). Look at this – made from one piece of lapis lazuli. Amazing detail.Some more interestingly shaped (naturally) pyrites.And one very cool (?) car.Actually, I don’t think I would drive it!
