So after this, we started heading back to the car. Of course in a place like this, there should be geocaches all over the place! Not quite so...there were a few, but none close around the lake. We had a "travelling coin" that we needed to drop off, so we were thinking we'd try to find one on the way back. Unfortunately, the batteries died on the GPS, so it made it difficult--BUT I DID IT ANYWAY!!! At 0.19 miles from the cache, the batteries died, but using the description and a hint of the location of the cache, I found it at the top of a hill named Sugar Cube. Awesome. I am so good...of course I have no pictures of the success, since I forgot to bring the camera with me (the batteries were dying on it too), but I promise--I did it!
And finally, on the way home, we took a picture of this house, which I figured my mom would appreciate...
Great day! Anacortes, with Washington Park, and now the forest lands, will definitely be a spot for repeat adventures for the Cools.
