Vacation Day # 7

Today was our last day here in OBX. I can't be sad because we had such an amazing time. Plus we have more fun stuff coming up in the next two months to look forward to. We had talked about going kayaking today. We got to looking at it was $65 a person for 2.5 hours. That seems very high for a short time. So after our fun time yesterday grabbing geocaches we decided to do that again today.

I'm so glad we did! It was so much fun!!
We ended up spending 5 hours in this amazing wood preserve that I would have never known existed unless it was for geocaching. It was right off the main highway and yet we were almost completely alone the entire day. We did run into another couple geocaching so that was neat. We found 20 caches total today. So many pictures I took. I'll share my few favorites...
 
 
 
If you look to the right of me in the bottom picture. You will see a small container hanging. That is a micro geocache. We found several today just like that one. You wouldn't see it unless you were looking for it. Actually sometimes when you are looking for them they are still hard to find haha. It was a very fun filled day. Only one bad thing happened. A huge killer (okay maybe not) spider was hiding under a log we found a cache under. It was HUGE and I hate spiders! So I had the heebie geebies for a long time but I guess we were in his territory so I should forgive him.

It's been one heck of a trip!!! Tomorrow we will start the 14 hr journey home. We will stop one night on the way. I'm looking forward to seeing Jeremiah, Mom, and Izzy (our dog).

  3. What a beautiful place! Okay, spiders don't really enhance that, but we'll just ignore them. It does sound like you had a lot of fun which is exactly what getaways are about. Safe travels home.
