A couple of weeks ago we had a fabulous time out at Royal Roads University in Victoria BC, geocaching at Hatley Park National Historical Site.
They’ve got a really great program tailored for families and even for birthday parties. Matthew and Garnet totally got into it, though Matthew had done geocaching before with Scouts. He helped get the rest of us up to speed, but the geocaching activities here come complete with a guide ! You get the thrill and fun of geocaching along with historical information about this amazing location (at 10U 465022 5364730 if you’ve got MapSource of other GPS enabled software).
Check out the program here.

We had a blast – so much so that a week later we bought our own map-enabled Garmin GPS unit. And that experience itself is worthy of another blog coming soon.
