Lately we have (finally) been regularly using the large easement behind the house which leads to the golf course and a dry creek bed. We have been trying at least once a day to walk down to the end of the houses at least. But a couple times this week, we have gone down into the creekbed to gather firewood, and hop across the rocks. Grace has gathered some terrific sticks, acorns and rocks, which she has (naturally) played with more than all the toys she got for Christmas and her birthday!
Our love of being out doors, combined with a sense of mystery and adventure in my heart, (along with the generosity of my benefactors who lent me the GPS unit- thanks, mom!) and researching other recent interests has led me to the new sport of Geocaching. After I read up a little more tonight (and figure out more specifically how to use this nifty little gadget) we are off on our first hunt tomorrow!
