Waterfall Rock

I had been looking back over some of my older blogs lately and came across “Go Fly a Kite” from a few years back… This totally inspired me to want to get a kite and get out there in these nice March winds! Of course the day I plan to go the winds were high above the trees and I knew it would be hard to get the kites up high enough so I opted just to go on a hike. I had to get out of this house and out in a bit before I totally go mad!
Boykin Springs is our “go to” park for hiking when we don’t have all day to drive then hike. We generally hike the lake trail (which doesn’t even show up on the map) but I wanted a bit of a change so we headed down the Sawmill Hiking Trail. The trail used to go all the way to Bouton Lake but private land now blocks the way. I suppose that doesn’t matter today we wont be going that far.

By the Sea Side

By The Sea Side
April 14-15, 2012

We have so many hobbies and things we like to do it is always neat when we can incorporate a couple together on an outing.
We were getting close to our 200th find on Geocaching and I wanted to make it a memorable find. We also had taken up “birding” recently and this was migration season. So what do geocaching birders do? They go find a geocache at the Smith-Oaks Bird Sanctuary. My in-laws had been wanting us to come to their beach house for a visit so hubby took the day off and we headed to the ocean a little early so that I could go check out what a birding sanctuary was (and get that geocache!)
We geocached a little on our way down because we still have a couple to find before hitting 200!

Geocaching The Big Thicket

Geocaching the Big Thicket

February 26, 2012

We wanted to go geocaching and Village Creek SP has several caches in it. We also love hiking the Sundew Trail and the Kirby Nature Trail and I wanted to put geocaches in the parks. We decided to make a day of it!

First stop was a park we like in Woodville. We walked around a bit before finding a place to hid a cache. While wandering, we noticed some Leaf Cutter Ants. These guys always make me think of:
Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

I loved on my wonderful son. Really is had nothing to do with me freezing because it was brisk that day and I was without my jacket!

Caching During a Drought


Caching During a Drought

January 15, 2012


As with any tradition, it begins as an action repeated until it becomes expected. And so it seems picnics have become a tradition anytime we go caching.




We had a cache to find in this road side park but I didn’t even look at where it was suppose to be until we had all eaten. If they had been distracted they would have never finished their lunch! By Yahweh’s grace we had parked at the table that was closest to the cache!
