I had such an enjoyable day with my 10 year old daughter today. We drove about an hour and a half and picked up about 20 paintings that had been in a library exhibit. Then stopped by Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We walked the trails, checked out the butterfly house, and then settled in on this place to paint and draw. She sat and drew in a pad while I painted the painting you see here. This "blue hole" (although more green today because of rain) is part of an underground river that surfaces through the hole in the caves ceiling. This hole is over 400 feet deep. Pretty cool.
We then ate lunch at one of our favorite restaurants and came home. Tired but happy.
