Meramec Caverns

James and I both had Friday off, so we decided to visit Meramec Caverns.  It is about an hour's drive from where we live.  The temperature inside the cave is 58 degrees year round, so it was a nice outing where we didn't have to be outdoors in the cold weather for very long.  It snowed here off and on all day yesterday.

They were not very busy while we were there.  There were only three other people in our tour group.  We had a nice tour guide, and I noticed early on that he had an accent.  An accent that I love to hear during the cold winter when I'm missing Baton Rouge.  I whispered to James that he sounded Cajun.  After the tour was over I asked the guide where he was from.  I was right.  He was from Lafayette, LA. We told him that we used to live in Louisiana, and chatted for a moment.  Two of the other people in our group overheard us, and they told us that they were also from Louisiana.  What a small world!

We enjoyed the tour.  The cave was very interesting.  We picked up a few postcards to send to our sponsored child in Ethiopia.
