We had a really lovely meal in a restaurant called Grill @ 42 where the owner gave us a list of things we could do tomorrow. Watch this ...
... the cave and we saw all of the silk webs that the worms produce in order to catch food.
Finally we went on the most magical part of the tour, on a boat journey under a large completely black cave that was filled with glow worms in every single direction. It was very peaceful and was over all too quickly.
After the glow worm caves it was still fairly early in the day so we decided to go on ...
