Below is a map of the area near where I live. Each of those icons is a hidden cache. The nearest one to me turned out to be about 200 m from my front door ! BTW those four happy faces near the centre of the map are four that I have found. Wherever you live, I can guarantee that there are caches nearby.
That's it. That's about all there is to it. Geocaching is an excuse to explore places with fresh eyes and a challenge to see how many caches you can find. Most caches include a log book for you to sign and even if they didn't you can always log your find on the Geocaching.com web site.
Last week I went to Lunenburg to have lunch with some chums there. I figured I'd also look for some caches while I was there.
One of them was hidden in an old rotted tree in the cemetery next to the Lunenburg Academy.
|The cache in the tree. Pretty small eh ?|
While exploring the cemetery I was attracted to this pretty plot and was surprised by the sad message it contained on the two plaques.
Sophia's tragic story brought me up short...
Sophia, I am so sorry. I truly hope that you did find your reward in Heaven; but I wish you'd had a full and wonderful life first. I also wish I could travel back in time and smack your mother and give you a hug.
