Geocaching The Islands

Geocaching The Islands

The second day of the year was filled with a beautiful sunrise, the first cold front of the year, and geocaching on Cayo Costa.  Kim at snug harbor sent some friends down to travel with me and enjoy the Island of Cayo Costa while geocaching. I enjoyed the company of Dena, Barry, Margie, Tony, and Mary. The cold front rolled through while we were on the island. This did not slow down the geocachers in finding there cache. However the cache was not in the spot it was supposed to be. So after a little more looking around the landscape we found the cache. I enjoyed learning more about geocaching and listening to there stories.  On the trip back we observed many dolphin. A big highlight for myself was watching Dena see her first bald eagle in the wild.  A great way to start the new year.

    Capt. Brian – You should put some caches out. If anyone knows some cool places – you would.
