Soaking Up Some Weekend Sunshine

My mother-in-law was in for the weekend. After living here for over 10 years we finally took her to see the Marine Corp Memorial. It was perfect weather - 65 degrees and sunny. Even after a few visits to the memorial, I'm still moved by it.

In the afternoon, I took our 8 year old out for a bit of Geocaching in Lubber Run park. The park provided has a wonderful trail, stream and bit of woods. I didn't get the sense that it was very large, but it's still a gem to check out in Arlington.

We spent a good 30 minutes looking for the Excalibur cache in park, but finally had to give up looking. As we walked away from where I was certain the cache would be placed, I couldn't help but continue to search. Sure enough, I noticed one rock that looked a little out of place and found the cache. This turned out to be the best named and most cleverly camouflaged cache I've had the pleasure of finding. When you're ready for a tricky cache, go after this one.

It's so tempting to post a picture of the cache, but I'd rather not. I don't want to spoil it for folks who will go out and find it.
