By now you all know I’m a geocacher. While on vacation we managed to find a few caches along our route and we even found a geocoin or two. For you muggles (non-cachers) out there a geocoin is a coin with a tracking number on it. The owner of the coin lets it loose in a geocache and another cachers picks up the coin and moves it on, and so on. . .
This geocoin we couldn’t resist moving because it looked like our GPSr.
Even the back! Cool, no? Before you ask, we use rechargeable batteries, and yes you see a date on one of them, I label them all when we get them so we know how old they are.
This coin wanted to stay in Maine so we dropped it at the cache we found at this magnificent view. Then we were off to enjoy the beach for a while. . . And find another cache.
The tide was on the way out so we didn’t have to wade too much to get to this cache. In fact, on our way back the guys took the same path and there was no water there.
As we rounded a curve we discovered a surprise!
An old barge. Wonder how long it’s been there.
There was also some old lobster cages. You should have seen me taking this photo. It was very smelly and, well, gross there - so I stood upside down trying to get a decent buoy shot.
We did find the cache and some shells! We've now found caches in 29 states! Then it was time for lunch.
Continuing with our caching theme, I insisted we eat here when I saw the name! 44 degrees North has a great salad too!
