The little yellow fleck in the background, is the portage sign. The geocache was hidden up the trail about 300m (so he said).
Now, I don't have a picture because I didn't think of it, but I HATE old railway bridges, the kind you can see through the slats to the rushing water below. I am not afraid of heights, I use to jump off any height I could (usually just sheds) when I was a kid. For some reason, I CANNOT cross railway bridges. I know in theory, I can't fall through the holes but it doesn't matter. I inch along painfully slow when I need to cross them (other than the time my cousin & I came across a bear, that time I ran.)
The point being, the geocache was hidden on the far side of a railway bridge, underneath the bridge. Sigh. I made it across the bridge, he went underneath and retrieved it. (I couldn't go down, it was steep and I was only wearing flipflops...evidence of how well-informed I was, haha or perhaps how well I listen)
Yes, I'm still wearing my lifejacket. I have no idea why.
We did all the geocache stuff... and headed back.
I got a wee bit stuck in the mud.
I definitely am whining in this post, but the reality is, it was pretty fun.
Happy Thursday loves xo
