Caves

Agilitis Cave in Greece

We’ve gotten into the habit of touring caves with the family when we travel. Everyone is so different from the others. I especially liked this one in Greece. You don’t usually see a stream running through the cave. Ponds and puddles, I’ve seen plenty of those. And we were the only people on the tour for this particular cave. On a lark, I started singing as we walked. The tour guide looked back and said “Wait”. I looked at him quizzically and we carried on. We came out into a large chamber, “The sound is better here. You sing now.”

“I Wonder as I Wander” has a haunting melody in a minor key. Singing that in a cave with the echoing sound coming back from the side tunnels gave me chills. I wish we’d had good recording equipment for that. Singing in caves: highly recommend.
