Educating a muggle, woodland sculptures and miniknight’s 250th find at Chorleywood House

My 20 year old niece, Laura, has been staying with us for a week and as promised we took her out to demonstrate the fun of geocaching. We chose to go to Chorleywood House where there were a handful of caches that would serve our needsas far as educating a muggle! 🙂 Whilst she enjoyed her day caching with us I don’t think she will be rushing to take it up as a hobby when she returns to Minnesota. For one thing she seems to be rather allergic to the Minnesota air and so spending any amount of time out and about in the wilds is not too appealing for her.

As well as the geocaches, we stumbled upon a most enchanting sculpture garden that was obviously still a work in progress. The detail on the carvings was quite something to behold and it was great to be able to get up close to them and feel the sculptures
A wood carving of an owl is perched atop a tree trunk approx 5 feet tall.
a number of sculptures can be seen placed around the edge of a pond in amongst the woods.
A fairly standard caching day for us really, we found 5 caches, got hot, had to contend with a hill or too and got a little lost But one thing that was extra special was our second find of the day which was Sam’s 250th find on his own account (miniknight). We are so proud of him and considering he reach his 100 back in November that is some pretty impressive going.

We are fast approaching a milestone too and by the end of the day our find count was 697 so it won’t be long before we will be logging our 700th find. Happy Days 🙂
