MOTHER'S DAY CACHING






Each year my wife and I participate in a Homeschool convention at the Farm Show in Harrisburg. We co-ordinate the Used Curriculum Sale, which is selling used books and school items. The convention runs for two days, but we always arrive the day before to get our stuff set up. This year was no different. The members of our organization are allowed to register and sell their used books and curriculum which benefits the buyers, the sellers, and the organization. So it's profitable for all involved and this year it was a huge success.

This year we decided to stay an extra night, which would be Saturday night. So instead of driving home late into the night we didn't have to leave until sometime Sunday morning. Hey there's no better way to spend Mother's Day then to allow Mom to sleep in, take her to a brunch, and then Geocache on the way home. Especially since that is what she wanted to do.

Sunday morning we slept in until 9:00 AM. Then we packed up and headed out to brunch. After brunch we hit the road and started looking for our first cache. This one was a nice small cache and a nice little place to stop and stretch our legs.

Our next cache was really worth it. It is called Peace of Mind.  This cache is located along a side road with plenty of parking. We arrived at a peaceful garden area and walked around first before looking for the cache. The owners live across the road and on many occasions will come out and talk with you. The first thing we noticed was a large circular concrete pad with lines all around it. It is called a Labyrinth. Their cache page says "The labyrinth is a very ancient tool. It's circuitous design is a reminder of the twists and turns in our journey of life. Walking the labyrinth is a personal experience."




So walked the labyrinth and then took some pictures. Then it was off to see if I could find the cache since my wife was busy looking at the flowers. Well I did find it. I then had her come and look for it too and yes she found it as well. This was a nice large cache container, but sadly there were not Trackables in it. My wife decided to leave a TB that we have had for quite some time. You know how things get lost and forgotten, but I'm sure none of you have ever done that before.




After signing the logbook we walked around the garden areas just taking in all of the beautiful sights and smells. There were Azaleas, Daffodils, Hyacinths, Dwarf Iris, Magnolia, Apple trees in bloom, and many, many more. This place is truly amazing and beautiful. If you ever get the chance, and are in the area, be sure to stop and find this wonderful place.




As we left we stopped at the little pond across the road and watched a mother goose sitting on her eggs waiting for them to hatch. What a pleasant sight for Mother's Day. We then got back in the car and headed on our way.



We did find three other caches on the way home, which brought our total to 5 for the day. We could have done more, but we missed our children and wanted to get home to see them. This turned out to be a Mother's Day to remember as I celebrated it with my Honey who is the best mother around. She takes such good care of our children and sees to it that they get a good quality education to boot. I just want to say Thank You Dear and may God give us many more days together.
