In the early 20th century, “my cave” was the home of a mysterious hermit who slept in a hammock!
Some say that he was and Italian, some a veteran of the Boer War, others of the Great War; others that he was an eccentric member of a rich family living up the hill. He was known as ‘Decco’, and the cave is now known as ‘Decco’s Cave’. Decco had a habit of chasing marauding infant intruders up the beach with an axe!
Another rumor back from Decco’s times, is that the cave is the home of flesh-eating bandits …
Of course now everyone wants to know what is inside? Thankfully I don’t have to fight my way through the spiders and others on the Internet have done the work for us:
Now in case you are still reading – thanks! I am starting to like discovering interesting places during my runs and find out things about them. I like to check out the chimney next as that seems the logic consequence … I discovered a cave and that leads to a chimney, it makes perfect sense to me.
