Treasure Hunters

Here are some pictures from our first ever geocaching trip. Geocaching was introduced to us by the Ferry Family. Todd Ferry is a great friend and brother in the Lord and invited me and the kids to go out on a geocache. The kids call it treasure hunting. The basic idea behind geocaching is that someone hides something and publishes the GPS coordinates on a website. You can log in to the website and search for caches that are close to your house. We went over to the lighthouse next to Zampa Beach to find this cache. There were two there, the first one was much easier to find than the second one. The second one was down by a cave and I had to traverse the side of this cliff to get to the cache. It was a blast and the kids had so much fun. All they talk about now is going treasure hunting. I can't wait to take them back out again. We tried this last weekend but it was really rainy. We'll have to try this weekend.

I forgot to introduce everyone in the pictures. From the bottom picture left to right is Caleb, Wil Ferry, Nehemiah Barnett, Wes Ferry, me, and Jonah. Not pictured is Todd Ferry. The wives, Ferry girls, and Ethan stayed home.

Sounds like a lot of fun! Too bad this weekend won't work out, at least if the forecasts for a typhoon are correct!
