Making a Spectacle of Ourselves: walking Spectacle Head in Cupids

Heading up
Katherine, John and Rowan head along the trail.

We took a jaunt out to Cupids today to walk up Spectacle Head. On sober (well, semi-sober) reflection, it might have been a bit much for two still-slightly-sick people on a cold, windy day. As is the way with such things, we didn’t realize this until we were 75% up the hill and then there was just no way we were leaving without finding the geocache.

Spectacle Head Cairn
The cairn on top of this hill is reputedly quite old and served as a navigational aid.

After we found this one, we decided that we might as well stagger across the field for another that was about half a kilometer away. So we hoofed it slowly from Spectacle Head to Speckled Head.

At least, some of us trudged. Some of us weren’t sick and pelted across like mad fools.

Katherine and Rowan heading in exactly the wrong direction. There's just no helping some people.

And then there was sitting and poking through the cache.

Notice the camo leggings coupled with brilliant rainbow socks. Apparently she was dressed up as a geocache. I didn't have the wherewithal to ask about the socks.

Rowan found mud. And bounced. And even swam after sticks. Which means, in Rowan terms, it was a very good day (despite jumping out of the picture frame and getting her ear tips visual lopped off. This apparently doesn’t bother her.)

    Great fun – I know the feeling of walking too far but feeling the need to find that magical plastic box!

      Yep, it’s a sickness. There’s a whole series of caches about the varying forms of it in Burnaby, BC (he Cache Shrink Series). Luckily the walk was fairly short. And there was ice cream after.
