Treasure hunting with Eden....

Heath and Eden at Tower Point park in Metchosin. Us big kids call it geocaching but for our little hunter we call it "treasure hunting". I am always left in disbelief to see her running on full tilt down trails, through the bushes hunting for the special hidden treasure. The first time I have to admit I planted a treasure because it was pretty obvious that we were not going to find it, but in order to keep Eden excited about going geocaching I had to let her "find" something!!

An example of a cache. Sometimes little Tupperware containers other times camouflaged peanut butter jars or sometimes little micro finds which are in old film canisters. You never know until you find it.
