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! 🙂

Taking a look back at my charm bracelet, to remember what all the little charms were, and for what memories they bring.

This first photo is I think a cute mouse or rat. I’m not real sure if I bought it, or if it was given to me. I’m more leaning to it was given to me by my very good friend. This was back in high school. You know when you meet someone for the first time, and it seems you’ve known each other forever? That’s how it was, and we both felt it. Could it have been we knew each other in a former life? We thought so.  It is engraved on the back with the letters, “BC”, which is for her name. Why a mouse/rat? I have no idea now, but it must have meant something back then.

The second photo is a bat. I remember I bought this when my family visited Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. I’ve been there a couple of times, and it is an amazing cave. So, of course I had to have a charm of a bat.
