Washing Stones

Oh my, I am such a bad blogger - no posts for months!!  Today I want to share some pictures of a cave near where I live that has fresh water running through it.  Inside is a series of washing stones where the women of the hamlet used to come to wash their clothes and linen in days gone by.  If you look carefully you will see the two indentations for the knees on the top of each stone and then the ridges cut into the stone to provide some friction when rubbing the clothes.  If you catch the light at the right time of day it produces coloured dancing lights on the walls of the cave which the local children believe to be fairies!  How magical!
