Every month, Mom starts something new – a new story for her 12×12 Challenge. This month, she is working on a story that she is determined to finish, even though she doesn’t even like it. She said, “This story is weird.” and “I have no idea where this is going.” and “Let’s get out of here. We’re going to the park.”
I LOVE when that happens!
Recently, we started something new at the park, too. It’s called Geocaching.
We learned about it from our blogging friends Finn and Gizmo.
Mom read the web site, watched the YouTube video, signed us up, put the app on her phone, and off we went. When we got to the park, we looked at the flowers, and then sat on the bench for a while.
C’mon, Mom! What are we waiting for!?
Mom checked out the app and it said that there was a cache .3 miles from where we were sitting!
We weren’t too hopeful, since the park was all torn up with noisy construction vehicles, and a lot of the shrubs and plants were gone.
But we walked along, following the arrow on the GPS and the compass. At the end of the construction fence, there was one shrub left.
Mom said “This must be the place.” and “Get out of there before you get stuck.” and “OMG! There it is!!”
It’s behind my right ear!
I helped her find it! “Uh… You’re welcome, Mom….”
It was the tiniest little container with a paper to sign inside.
So we signed and put it back exactly where we found it.
Our first find. First of many, I hope!
There’s always a new story to write and always a new geocache to find.
