‘Discover’ – Geocaching, Patience and the Beach!

 I have been wanting to join in with the fabulous Word Of the Week run by Jocelyn who writes at The Reading Residence,  for ages but have not been organised enough!

But this week I am and my word of the week has been `Discover’!

 It is no secret that we like a bit of geocaching.

In my opinion, it is good healthy fun for all the family.

However, our eldest has never enjoyed the delights with us before. She is usually at work, uni or nursing a hangover, whenever we go.

On Sunday, she advised that she would be free to come out with us for the day and asked what would we be doing.

When we decided on geocaching, her face remained unchanged and she asked would food be involved. Knowledge of a picnic and ice cream at the end secured her participation.

 So you see there were no expectations.

She imagined she would be walking the dog with food being an added bonus.

So off we set, suitably attired for a rummage through brambles.

 Then this happened!

The youngest discovered the first cache on our list.

 She filled in the log and the eldest discovered:

The caches are there.

The clues are accurate.

The logs revealed that tons of people do it.

It is really exciting!

When it came to locating the next one, she was in the lead.

There was a water trough involved and she was straight in.

I had to remind her that the youngest needed to look too and to wait her turn to sign the log ha!
image

 She was delighted by the whole thing and was talking about how she could incorporate into her lesson plans – she is studying primary teaching!
image

 This is a picture of them as they rushed to the next cache, they are both bouncing along, even the dog is bewildered. image

They were well away, racing to their next discovery!

image

 Then I discovered this view of the beach that I have never seen before.

It was beautiful!

This is the added joy of geocaching for me, I always see something I would have missed.

Have a lovely day!

My Captured Moment! #14

Unusually for me, I am choosing a recent photo as My Captured Moment today!

In the spring, the littlest and I decided to give Geo Caching a try. The first time we tried we eventually gave up because we could not locate three different caches.

However, we decided to try again and this picture shows her finding the first one we looked for that time.

That is the genuine look of delight on the face, of a then 11 year old.

I love this picture!

I am linking with Heledd from Running in Lavender for her lovely My Captured Moment link.
