I persuaded my husband to take a break from his work this afternoon to enjoy the lovely 68 degree weather with me. We went on a walk with the goal of finding a geocache in a local park. If you haven’t heard of geocaching, it’s a worldwide treasure hunt to find geocaches hid by other people. For more information and the rules, see the geocaching homepage. Geocaching is free and all you really need to get started is a GPS you can take with you.

Today we went to a neighborhood cache in a local park that has a pond and interesting sculpture of a Fish on a Bicycle. Rob found the cache very quickly, then we spent some time looking at the wildlife in the pond. First, there was a red-eared slider (turtle) hiding in the leaves.

There were also several ducks hanging out in and around the water.

Here’s a picture of the Fish on a Bicycle sculpture that’s in the pond.

Besides a few raindrops here and there, it was a really nice day for a walk and some geocaching.
