I have to say that 2015 was a pretty awesome year for me. No major catastrophes or heartaches, I made lots of new friends, I tried lots of new things, and Brian and I are loving living in Nova Scotia :-)
Insteaf of doing a 2015 round-up here on my blog, I thought I’d start off 2016 sharing something new with you – geocaching. I’d heard of it a while back, but didn’t really know what it was. Then a few weeks ago, I had lunch with some new friends, and one of them told us about her adventures geocaching. It sounded like fun, so I checked out the web site (geocaching.com) and found some caches less than 1km from our house. So on Christmas day, Brian and my dad and the dogs set out to find a cache – and we did!
Today, Brian and I and the dogs went into Lunenburg on a little geocaching adventure. I had eight caches to look for, but my phone died after four. We found two caches at the Luneburg Academy…
This one was an interesting find. Can you guess where the cache is hidden?
The next cache was pretty easy to find – the footprints in the snow helped a bit ;-)
Can you see where the cache is?
And then we headed to the middle of town and found the biggest cache of the day…
See the orange marble? I think my friend who told me about geocaching put it into this cache :-) I took the marble and left behind this little guy… finally, something to do with all the pounds of seaglass I’ve been collecting!
I hope he finds good home soon :-)
I took some snaps of Lunenburg along the way. The Lunenburg Academy is looking a bit rough around the edges right now, but renovations are underway and it should be looking as good as new soon.
