Off on another Letterboxing adventure!
This one was also in Wake Forest, but we didn't walk to it, as it was very hot and we were letterboxing in the early afternoon. This one brought us to a nice historical location in Wake Forest, and it was lovely.
We had to visit a beautiful shady garden and there was a really great millstone fountain in it. This type of fountain is wonderful for public gardens and parks, because you don't have to worry too much about children drowning in it! We had a hard time getting Anderson to come with us on the rest of our adventure - he just wanted to stay and play in the water!
This is an old well that was used for water at the old Wake Forest College Birthplace. I think it usually has some water in it, but we couldn't tell for sure. It was dry the day we visited.
We got to witness a Cicada emerging from it's shell. It kept shaking violently and just barely eeking out of the skin. We didn't stay the whole time, it was taking forever to get out.
After we found the letterbox and 'stamped up', we relaxed a little in the beautiful gardens at the site. It was a really nice day, and a great place to have a letterbox hidden.
Last night, we went to "National Night Out" at the local Target parking lot. We met with McGruff the crime dog, and saw a lot of emergency equipment. The Girl Scouts were there with a recruiting booth, and we were able to climb into an army helicopter!
Anderson gives McGruff Five!
Taylor Anne was proud to show off her Girl Scout Sticker. She loves being in the Girl Scouts! Isn't she a poser? She cracks me up with the way she 'strikes a pose' whenever I take a picture!
