Today's visit is to Dan Yr Ogof Caves on the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales;a small gold mining industry from days gone by. The story began in 1912 on a summer's morning when two farming brothers named Tommy and Jeff Morgan investigated a source of water which was running into their farm. They had no interest in caves and carried no special equipment they made their way 300 metres into the cave and proceeded to find a tiny passage above the river which around 30 yards further on broke into one of the finest show caves in Britain. http://www.wales-underground.org.uk/ogof/history.shtml.
Today it is a precious treasure trove for children and young minded adults alike and we had a wonderful day out with grandchildren Ellie and Charlie. Dan Yr Ogof Caves are also a venue for wedding ceremonies (photo included at the end of this hub) Enjoy !!!
Excitement edged fear Those tales of the great unknown Compelled to follow. x Courageous ; daring Heartbeats powerful echoes Filling cold chambers. x Cascading treasures A new realm of memories Magical treasures.
Walk on Each breath bated Great moments tinged with fear Such eerie drive so compelling Careful footsteps;crackling repercussions Rasping bone chilling evil breaths Follow me if you dare Nerves stretched and taut Walk on.
Nervousness tightened Over and over again Trepidation and elation . x Fearful dark eerie visions Oh to live a life on the edge Reality callously thrown into oblivion. x Terrors echo and swell Horrendously shattering Excitement edged fear.
An explosion of myth of great might The land that time forgot with heartbeats pounding Is this my lot? But with a being so brave; those nerves of steel fears we must conquer to quash to powerfully throw back into the realms of oblivion. Colossal mights ferocious sounds thrive in a dark state. A state swelling uncontrollably to the heavens above. Cringing unashamedly "Oh please do not harm me!!" My advancing years being no armour; my fears surfaced for all to see to ridicule Oh dearie dearie me !!! Some one cruelly uttered Scaredy cat!!" "Coward !!" "Daftie !!" Roar !!!! Roar !!! Roar !!! Quivering footsteps that cry for help!!! No one is listening Oh help!!! Oh help!!! Oh help!!! Why did I come ?? Am I the fool ?? Roar!!Roar !! Roar !!! The crackling of twigs like the splitting of taut nerves!!
