Thursday Doors: Birdhouse Cache Summer is really over now: this past Monday was Labor Day, and my teaching job is starting up. But it's nice to remember the summer through blogging. Last week I showed the door of an unusual geocache in Germany. That wasn't my favorite cache of the trip, though.

September 1 : Isle of Wight : Freshwater Bay Our walking holiday was at an end. We had packed our bags and loaded the car. But… … we had yet to find the three nearest caches to where we were staying. We had a couple of hours before our ferry home, so this was the ideal time to find these caches.

NEA18: Concord to Boston "The cemetery is the burial site of a number of famous Concordians, including some of the United States' greatest authors and thinkers, especially on a hill known as "Authors' Ridge." Funny thing is, Concord has those "little roads", too. You know the ones… they look suspiciously like narrow roads, but turn out to be pedestrian paths.

August 31 : Isle of Wight : The Needles and Freshwater Bay So soon, it was the last full day of our week-long walking holiday on the Isle of Wight. The final walk for the week was a cracker, taking us inland from Freshwater Bay, towards the Needles, then a glorious finale along the bouncy turf of Tennyson Down.

Another Geo Serendipity I used to tell my family, when my kids were younger and cared about what we would find in each treasure box, that every geocaching outing would allow for some lucky thing to happen: a serendipity. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines serendipity as: the phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for: also: an instance of this.

Thursday Doors: Achtung, Baby! While regular doors on buildings are a staple of Thursday Doors, I have also liked varying the theme a bit, especially to include doors on other structures, such as trucks, little free libraries, electrical boxes, or porta potties. Or geocaches.

So… geocaching is my new hobby But finding these caches, signing the tiny log inside, and then logging them digitally using the geocaching app or website, is the ultimate goal.

August 29 : Quarr Abbey, Fishbourne and Tennyson's Monument We were on week's walking holiday on the Isle of Wight, but, as most of the walks were with largish walking parties, it wasn't easy to cache as we walked. Our day off enabled us to choose our own route, and select a few interesting caches.
