Well, all the caves I can think of, and have actually been to visit, are Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, and Inner Space Caverns in Georgetown, Texas. They are both awesome to see all the cave formations. It’s amazing how the beautiful structures are underground, and learn how they were formed, and discovered.

These photos are of a couple of things from the gift shop in Carlsbad. First is a silver charm for my bracelet, and it is a bat. The next photos are of a coffee mug that we use all the time. There is a picture of a flying bat, and it says “Bats Need Friends Too!”, and the name Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

I know I had some photos of Inner Space but can’t remember where they are. It was years ago when we went, and was before phone cameras were a normal thing to have with you.

And this is interesting … My parents took their honeymoon at Carlsbad Caverns! This was in August 1944, and I have the little souvenir booklet my mom filled out. It is leather with a tie/strap on the left. It is embossed with a picture of a Native American on a white horse in the middle, and says “Honeymoon Book”, and Carlsbad Cavern N. Mex.

Hope everyone is staying safe and having a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Janet!
      I’m glad I have the Honeymoon book, too. She wrote some other stuff in there about their fun days while there.
      I like the thought of bats, but don’t really want to run into one! 🙂

  1. How cool! Nice piece of history. I’ve been to both places too. Carlsbad Caverns was a stop on our way to CA one summer. One of the best vacations ever. There’s a picture around here somewhere that I need to find.

    • Thanks, Jill!
      Caves are fun to visit. Can you imagine the first people to discover them were astounded by what they saw. I’m glad we’ve got to see both of these, too. 🙂

    • Thanks, Emily!
      I don’t know if the caves are a Honeymoon destination, but why not. These at least are not too far from where we live, so makes a nice day trip. 🙂

    • Thanks, Lakshmi!
      That little book is fun to look through, to see what my mom wrote about their Honeymoon. I think they had a great time there and taking the tour through the cavern. I don’t know much about their dealings with life during the world war 2, but I do have some of the food ration books and stamps that they had to use during those days. 🙂
