WHY NOT WEDNESDAY - Decatur Island Geocaching Boat Trip

Our new friend Matt tells the story but, the video speaks for itself. Enjoy a little boat trip and all the wonderful sights along the way as we charter a geocaching adventure! Climb aboard.....


We anchored out next to Decatur Island. The water was still aside from the occasional wakes of passing boats. The Velkommen and Remedy were rafted together and Bill and Sharon climbed aboard. We lowered the dingy. My father at the helm, Sarah and I climbed in. The three of us motored over to an unnamed island for the first geocache. We came to shore next to an old abandoned lime kilm. Sarah found the cache after a short hunt and continued to tromp around the small island discovering all sorts of other treasures ranging from freshly eaten crabs still swarming with scavengers to the bleached out bones of a fawn.





We motored over to Decatur Island for the next cache. My father motored back to the boats to pick up the rest of our crew. My mother, father, Bill, Sharon, Sarah, and I all made the hike. The trail winded around the edge of the island and revealed some stunning views. My father carried the GPS to ground zero, but my mother made the find. We hiked back down and spent the next hour combing the small sandbar while basking in the summer sun.

By the time we made our way back to the boats it was time to head back, ending the day two caches ahead of where we started. We shoved off Remedy and headed back to the marina. A number of seals were lying on the dock to welcome us back, taking in the last rays as the sun fell dipped below the horizon.
