Painted Cave. Terrifying.
My two friends Sofia and Maia went with me, my dad, and Ingo into painted cave. It was an interesting adventure to say the least. My friend Sofia and I are one hundred percent horrified of seals, when we see seals we freak out. So my dad takes all of us into painted cave in the skiff that he has. Right as you enter you can hear all the seals that are in the cave and so me and Sofia curled up into the smallest balls we could and sat on the floor. As you go deeper into the cave it gets darker, smaller, and the seals get louder. At one point me and Sofia were begging to go back to the boat but no. Everyone else thought it was so amusing to watch us freak out. So after continually screaming and freaking out for about ten minutes we finally got my dad to turn around.
Me and Sofia were relieved and my friend Maia thought it was hilarious to watch us. As we are heading out of Painted Cave I thought about how scary it would be to swim out so I said “Do you think anyone would ever swim out of here?”
My dad’s friend Ingo looked at me and said “Can you hold my drink for a second?” So I grabbed his cup and suddenly: SPLASH! Ummmm? He had just jumped into the water with all the seals and laughed and started swimming out towards the boat. I looked at my dad and then Sofia and then Maia completely shocked at what I had just seen. I thought only a crazy person would do that because that is terrifying.
All I knew was I was staying the skiff and there was absolutely no way that I was going to even put a finger in the water. So after what seemed like forever we were finally about three quarters of the way out of the cave and my dad turned off the engine. I turned around quickly and he told me that the engine failed so we were stuck. Then he started to giggle and said he was kidding. It was not funny.
Moral of the story is there are to many seals in Painted Cave and it was not enjoyable for me and my friend Sofia and neither of us are going back in it anytime soon.
