It is funny, this letterboxing thing, because it is a hobby that I quite enjoy and spend lots of time doing (less now than I did) but very, very few of my friends know that I do it. In fact, I'd venture to say that very few of my friends have even heard of it. I can't quite explain why it is but I kind of like keeping the two worlds separate. Perhaps because it seems special that way, and not something that then becomes competitive or overrun or ...? Anyway, I wanted to check out the letterboxing stuff on Facebook but I didn't want to join any of those groups under my real name because then it might give my secret away. So I created a Facebook account for my alter ego, Royal Fish. I even uploaded a profile picture of my "school" (of fish - get it?!) and me letterboxing. If you find yourself on Facebook, stop by my Royal Fish page and say hello. I'd love to hear from you!

It was a beautiful winter day and we wanted to get outside. We headed over to Stone Crest and I decided to plant a temporary letterbox. Although it was always booked, the B&B needed to expand to make a profit but between the township dragging their feet on approvals, the economy going sour, and the banks calling their loans, this establishment had to pack it in. Anyway, the walk was lovely albeit short. Perfect for a cold, clear winter day.
