It wasn't raining at all, but we went to Long Pond Beach to check out where it was raining frogs. I found it with no problem. The box was completely exposed so I hid it well, using a few small rocks and bark. Quick and easy, perfect for this beautiful Easter day.
As I was basking in the glory of my trip around the world, I took some time in the afternoon to visit a few of my ancestors in the Brewster area, Chillingsworth Foster (1680 - 1764), his wife, Marcy Freeman Foster (1687 – 1720), and her father, John Freeman (1651 – 1721).
Anyway, I've had a letterbox ready to plant that I wanted to put in a cemetery and was checking this one out to see if it would be suitable. As I was walking the perimeter of the cemetery yard I found an upside down container. When I picked it up and looked closer it was a letterbox. I didn't know where to hide it, I didn't even realize that any were planted here. So I brought it back with me and sent the owner a message. The box was missing a logbook which I replaced. Two days later I returned and hid the letterbox in its correct spot. I was unexpectedly pleased to meet Mr. Jonathan Cobb and have a little tour of his family. Unfortunately, Reliance was was not there, but her hollow was hard to miss.

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to celebrate New Years?! I made some incorrect assumptions about the starting point but soon got squared away. T1 (of Travelers4 fame) recommended that I bring pens. I was really glad I did. The images I got are really wonderful. A great way to tour around the world in one morning!
