Our first cache of the day was an Earthcache just a short drive away from the site of the big event. The Earthcache focused on the formation of sand dunes.
We found some traditional caches in the area, and strolled on the beach. Stranded jellyfish are a bit of a novelty for a lundlubber like me.
It was foggy and a bit drizzly, but we still enjoyed the beauty of the shore.
At the big event, we ran into old friends, like bluelamb03 (in his snazzy CCC t-shirt).
And Ducky (in the blue bandana).
We became acquainted with some of the local geocachers too.
Wee cacher was full of energy and pleased to have so many people to show off to.
After the event, we drove along the Lighthouse Route toward Lunenburg. The scenery was gorgeous.
Lunenburg is full of pretty, colourful houses and shops. The bright colours really stand out when the weather is grey and foggy.
This glorious building is a public school!
We found a few geocaches in Lunenburg, including one in this cemetery. I found these graves particularly interesting.
Here’s wee cacher with the skull of a Minke whale.
It got dark while we were in Lunenburg, so we only made one more stop on our way back to the campground…
Canada’s First Geocache! It was a bit of an adventure getting to it in the dark.
After making that crucial find, we went back to our tent for a good night’s sleep.
