Where ever there's water.

Ewart paddles deep under ground (well, its about 75- 100 vertical feet from the entrance)

Because we can, thats why! Just as it looks we took a small play boat down the local cave system to paddle in the lake at the bottom.

It's not a difficult system to get down as the local out door centre take kids down to the lake by various routes. How ever there are some proper caving routes in there requiring ladders and ropes. The lake has a small orange line fixed at one end the cave divers use to go off exploring. It gets proper deep in there!

At times we just got the boat though the passages and chambers. Great names like Crystal, Bishops and Cheese slab. Along with some very tight squeezes. It was all done in safety though as Jim (red overalls) is a qualified cave leader and has plenty of experiance in the Pridemsleigh system.
