Visited with Dweeb, Speed, OT and Olivia.

After having a bit of a game actually accessing the Catacombs in the area we wanted to, we finally managed to enter unscathed. This was my first time down there and despite being a little apprehensive it soon became apparent that I really had no reason to worry about a thing (except a minor altercation with a rat). We spent 4 days underground with a much needed Mcdonalds break in the middle and managed to see quite a decent amount in that time.

All pictures were taken on my phone as taking my Nikon out of my bag quickly became too much effort.

Big thanks to everyone involved for making sure I didn't die! :)

"Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord, I cause breath to enter into you and live. And I will lay sinews upon you. And will bring up flesh on you. And ???? cover you with skin: and I will give to you the Spirit, and ye dry bones, yet shall he live."

Some nice pictures there, you captured it well.

Was a good trip, except for the 'mare getting in.

Was particularly good, for myself at least, to meet up with our old friends Rug and Virgil.

No tired grumpiness and no hangovers from hell were a nice bonus as well.

And, there wasn't any need to worry about the quality of the phone pictures eh? May as well chuck the SLR away now.

OT, not until a wide angle comes with phones! The close ups are good but the longer range shots are quite grainy when you zoom right in.

It's a picture taken looking upwards into the bone shaft, so they're all wedged above me.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!
