I’m not the only one drawn to the mystery of the nooks and crannies of the world.
Just like me these paddlers want to know what’s inside Swallows Cave.
Just like me the darkness piques their curiosity, leads them to explore the cracks and the fissures and the places the light can’t reach.
A short while later, when they had seen all they thought there was to see they paddled back out into the stark sunlight again.
What’s curious is they never saw me floating here in the watery darkness observing their explorations.
I wonder what else is down here, never seen, observing all of us?
