Glow Worms

A few days ago my family, my three best friends, Enya, Mia and Uncle Rob, our family friend Brian and I went to see the glow worms. Glow worms are various different groups of insect larvae which glow through bio-luminescence. Enya and Mia had slept over the night before and we were all pretty tired but we made ourselves get out of bed early.

We ate breakfast and quickly got into the car. With no stops on the way we made it to the glow worms in record time. When I say glow worms I mean the beginning of the walk to get to the glow worm caves. We started our walk and for the next half an hour we walked and walked and walked; we had to avoid many cow plops.

When we got to our first cave my friends and I looked at the mud and decided to take off our shoes. The mud was so thick it was disgusting. The six of us went down into the cave while Un-Kee Bob (my new name for Uncle Rob) and Mom stayed out. It was pretty tricky getting down into the cave but we made it ok. When we got to the bottom of the cave it was really dark and we could only see 1 glow worm. It was pretty lame, until Dad found a crevasse with about 50 glow worms in it. It was so cool.

When we climbed out of the first cave we had to walk for another 10 minutes to get to the next one. It was much bigger than the previous one and much steeper. We scrambled our way down the rocks and finally made it to the end of the tunnel. OMG amazing! It was so cool. We all screamed out so loud. Mia, my best friend, was the loudest. The glow worms sprinkled the ceiling like stars sprinkling the sky.

Finally it was time to get back to the car. We quickly turned around and headed back to the car. Today was definitely a day to remember.
