late holiday find

left hidden


We went hunting for a Geocache on our family holiday in Solva in Wales at the end of July. There are quite a lot registered in that area, but this one was very close to where we were staying. It was fun: first we discovered the general location from the Geocache website, and there was a code to crack to give us a clue about the exact location. But I don’t think we would have found it without the help of my daughter’s Smart phone.

Miss E, Master R and Little Miss M were all very excited to find the plastic pot. We lifted the cache and took it back to the B&B to show the rest of the family

This is what we found inside the cache

The idea is that you can take an item from the cache and replace it with a little gift. It was fun to read what others had written, but we were just a little bit disappointed to discover  a marble and some sweets. Nobody wanted to eat the sweets, Little Miss M wanted to keep the marble.  We threw a couple of sweets in the bin and the children had fun deciding what to leave in their place. This is what we put back in the cache: A sheet of stickers, a butterfly candle, a rubber, and a Love Rock

We put the cache back where we found it and covered it up with stones

  3. A great combination and challenge covers. A lovely story Sandra, fun can be had as shared family activities that cost nothing but time and a few simple gifts.

  4. This always sounds like fun. I think the people that find your cache will be very pleased with it, I would be 🙂

  5. I would have been cautious about the sweets, no telling how long, and all that! I think you left the cache a better thing than you found.

  8. You left much better treasures than you found! What a fun activity with the kids, though.

    • Yes we did Kerry! and we had a great conversation about doing that and how nice it would be for the next people who found the cache. A lovely way of practicing ‘random acts of kindness’.
