My new most favourite thing to do as a family is going
geocaching! We are late joining the
craze but I absolutely love it! It’s
such an adventure, trying to track down a cache and see what might be hidden
inside. So far we have found three but
we have plans to discover many more over the next few weeks. It’s a great way to encourage the boys to
get outdoors, stretch their legs and take in their beautiful surroundings. Whenever we go anywhere from now on we will
be checking out our app and seeing if there is a nearby cache. You feel such a sense of satisfaction when
you manage to find one.

can be very tricky to find, but the app has clues and the comments can also
help out if you get really stuck, or mystify you more depending on the picture
showing a big cache and then an hour later you find a tiny teeny one!!! But things do change caches get broken and
need replacing. So be prepared for

cache can be found pretty much anywhere.
We have had two hidden in rocks and the third one was magnetic and stuck
on to something, well it had slipped onto the floor so we took awhile to spot
it! We make a point of always carrying
a pen so you can write in the logbook and a stash of items to hide in the
cache. After all if you take something its only
polite to offer something in return. I
was a little sad we could not leave anything in the last cache but it only just
fit the logbook inside. But as we
continue our geocaching journey I am sure we will be able to leave plenty more
items across the country. The boys so
far like leaving duplicate Moshi Monsters they have, not sure what they will
move on to when they have worked there way through their spares.
am looking forward to the weekend and seeing where we can go next!
