Hooray! Sailor Babo is taking a trip in a big, gas-guzzling RV! He’s all ready to go!
(Sometimes Sailor Babo gets a little behind in sharing his adventures. You can tell from the trees that it’s springtime!)
Sailor Babo starts off by spending the night at Cowan Lake State Park near Wilmington, Ohio. He looks yearningly at the lake from the RV window. He will have to come back here someday with his little boat!
Whew! Even all his years of seafaring did not prepare Sailor Babo for the experience of piloting an RV down an Interstate! He has finally made it to Kentucky. He’s going to take a break.
Gosh, Mariser lives in a pretty state. He has even heard there are some horses around here! But where?
There’s a pretty horse, right over there! Hey, Mister Horsie! Come on over and say hello!
WHOA! Where did this guy come from? He sure is a friendly horse! In fact, he’s so friendly that Sailor Babo has leapt off the fence and gone running back to the RV for cover!
After some more driving, Sailor Babo has reached his destination: Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky! He’s going to go inside the Visitor Center and buy a ticket.
Outside the cave entrance, Sailor Babo learns that the temperature inside the cave system is consistent year round.
Wow, this cave is big and dark! Sailor Babo feels tiny and insignificant! It’s damp, too—there seem to be some droplets of water on the camera lens!
It’s so dark that Sailor Babo has to fiddle with the exposure just to make this picture come out! It gives him a weird halo effect, but Sailor Babo assures you he is not a ghost, and he has not been pasted into this picture!
GACK! Are those gigantic space aliens descending from the ceiling? Sailor Babo hides behind the nearest boulder! No, those are rock formations, developed over approximately 132 bazillion years.
Mmm! Is that delicious, yummy taffy emanating from the wall? Sailor Babo would always like some taffy! No, actually, those are more rock formations! Wow!
Whew! The cave is neat, but Sailor Babo is glad to be back outside in the open air.
It’s time to take the RV back to the rental place. Sailor Babo wants to do this again sometime!
