Extinct Pengy

I had received a message or two that trouble was afoot at my Pengy box at Reservoir Park in York. There was a rumbling about a geocache that was close. Today I decided to get the ankle biters out of the house and enjoy the beautiful day while checking on Pengy myself. Unfortunately, it looks as if Pengy has become a victim to a very closely planted geocache. In fact, the cache is an easy 10 steps away. Cachers had logged into the Pengy box, perhaps one even took my stamp since it is now missing along with the top to the box. I have decided to pull this box, at least temporarily, until I can regroup. Pengy enjoyed his spot for about 3 years. I guess that's not too bad for the life of a penguin in the mid-atlantic region.

While in town, I checked on my Pond Pirate. He is doing well, resting in between battles.

Fairy Dust

The Caped Coder, Hydeez Mom, and I set out to Rock N Roll in the place where the fairies used to reside. Another great, great park. Love this one too! We had a lovely hike and really enjoyed the views of Pleasant Bay from the lookout. It was great fun to letterbox with these two. Let's do it again soon!

Ahoy There!

Hydeez Mom and I snuck away for a great hike on the beach to find Mouse Ahoy. We found the spot but no letterbox, unfortunately. But it was a beautiful walk in a part of Chatham that I have never been.

Mr. Hamilton's Whale

My research wasn't definitive but I took a chance and was successful in finding the Travelers 4 Maple Sugaring box. I enjoyed their landmark reference to the whale-like rock. That really is what it looked like to me too.

Operation Fun

I loved the Operation series and was thrilled when a new series, Operation Rock and Roll took its place in Volunteer Park. This is a wonderful park and I couldn't wait to make it our first stop on our Cape letterboxing tour.

Afterwards the boys took advantage of the great ball fields to work on some skills for the upcoming season.

What a perfect day! Baseball and Letterboxing, it doesn't get much better than that!
