Indian Echo Caverns November 2018
Many thanks to the lovely ladies at Indian Echo Caverns for inviting my wonderful mother and I to their homeschool day at the caverns alongside CHAP: Christian Homeschool Association of Pennsylvania. (Find Marann Jones’ book on the joys of Christian home education here: Four Jewels in My Crown).
We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and the caverns were a delight to explore. I could just see all the scenes from “Tedenbarr of Have Lath” coming to life:
The convoy rounded a corner and Tedenbarr caught his breath. Unlike the dim, sombre chamber the Alliance had first passed through, torches flung their light from every corner of the enormous cavern the longboats had just entered.
An ancient stone city was carved into the rock of the cavern, its grandeur like something out of the old tales. Free standing houses sat along the canal’s walkways, and some of the windows had curtains hung from them that glowed from the presence of light within. Lar Jahaal let go of his oar to gesture to the broken yet magnificent city that stretched out before Tedenbarr.
“Welcome to old A’an.”
Meeting all the homeschool families was really fantastic, and thanks to all who bought books – your support is much appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing everybody at the next book signing – until then, happy reading!
That’s so cool! I homeschool my two children too.
Thank you! I fondly remember how much fun those days were, and hope you and your family are enjoying the homeschool experience just as much!
