I heard the word "geocaching" at work the other day and had no idea what it meant, so I asked The Googles. I found that it's a gigantic scavenger hunt where people put out physical objects for you to find. Holly has to get 50 hours of driving in and I thought it might be fun to have her drive around while we look for geocaches.
It's our second day of hunting and our third geocache called Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, Rodentologists. We found our way to the Pittsfield Preserves where there are a bunch of geocaches.
We set out through the Preserves and immediately saw a skunk. Instead of taking a picture of it - I immediately turned tails to run. But ... it wondered off the path and we then continued on.
The clouds starting rolling in and we were on our journey.
I kept stopping to take pictures of the flowers.
So many are in bloom right now and they were just gorgeous.
I couldn't help myself ... I started to lag behind the girls.
Julia is the one who has the keen eye and usually jumps right into the brush. She did find the geocache. I won't spoil it - but it was super creepy! She nearly jumped out of her skin when she saw it.
Holly pulled out the log for us to sign.
It was nearly filled up on both sides.
We signed it.
Then we put it back.
We set off to find another and we found the coordinates. After searching around and seeing the clouds get thicker, we abandoned the quest and headed back to the car.
We were about 2 steps ahead of the rain the whole time.
We made it back right before the rain came down. The girls loved it and we'll be going on more adventures!
