Geocaching: the modern treasure hunt

Friends invited us to go geocaching with them on Thursday.  It is a modern twist on the old treasure hunt, using clues and gps coordinates.  When you find the stash, the kids each choose a prize and you replace what they take with something else.  My kids had an immense amount of fun.  The best part was exploring the area, getting so see a lot of new parks and gardens.

Park in Balwyn

 

 

The park we went to in Balwyn had a little tower you could climb to the top.

             

We went to three different parks.  The last thing we expected to see was a dinosaur!
