Weekend of April 29
Birch Creek Park on Lake Somerville for the Brazos Valley Geocachers' CITO (Cache In Trash Out) at our Apopt-a-Highway spot. Erin (flower71) was in charge of this one and she brought kolaches out. I still had some water bottles left from our first CITO that was donated by Lampo's Water & Coffee.
GxProxy. A couple were donated by Dale (zzypdale) and myself. The younger cachers REALLY enjoyed the whistles. Thanks, Frozen Buns...we think. :)
Nails Creek State Park to try to find a couple of caches. We went to the main office to check in. I love my Parks Pass! Then we drove down to Newman's Bottom to park and begin quite a long walk to find the first cache, Live Oak on a Sandhill. I LOVE gnarly trees like this (and ammo cans)! They have such character. The jump family headed out and flower71 and I decided to press on to another one near Flag Pond. Cell reception is HORRIBLE out here. We tried a couple of trails to get near GZ and then...my battery died. AARRGGHHH! We were close, but the brush was VERY thick and we weren't exactly sure where it was, so we sat down at a picnic table for a quick break and then headed back toward the truck. We racked up a LOT of steps today. I should have brought my pedometer for the day. We were surprised to see the nice, clean outhouse on the trail, little trails that led to campsites with log benches, a picnic table out in the middle of nowhere and more. These trails are really nice and for those of you with horses, this is a great trail system.
Sunday after church, we picked up some To-Go plates from one of the BBQ fundraisers in Snook and took it to my parents' house along with another couple of church members. The afternoon was spent pulling a few weeds in the flower beds, putting a couple more plants in the ground, watering everything and working on the church's website and Facebook page. It was a nice day just relaxing with my boy and my dog for a while and watching the hummingbirds in the yard.
