First try at Spelunking

The best thing about homeschooling is that you can have your family adventures anytime. In this unplanned visit in the areas of Lahug-Sudlon-Guadalupe, we were able to pass this developed cave along the road. It is where a statue of the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe is found by a native. They townsfolk believed that the sacred statue continue to protect the area from calamities and dangers. 

Developed by a generous family, the cave has become one of the tourist attractions of Cebu. Inside the cave is the statue of the blessed mother on the altar. There are lights and kneelers inside the place. 

Also known as Caving, Spelunking means exploring and studying the features of a cave. Stalactites and stalagmites are the basic features of a cave but there are other terms used by hobbyists. 

Inside the cave of Our Lady of Guadalupe, you will easily notice the wet portion of the ceiling, which is believed to be oil that can heal the sick. This is also used as holy water when blessed by a priest.

We are so thankful that we were able to visit the place and share some basic insights to our two sons.
