A Shubie Sunday Five For Five

Posted in Our Finds on Feb 08, 2010

The past several weeks of cold weather broke and our schedule was as clear as the azure blue sky above us. We took the opportunity to finally get back out Geocaching after a five month hiatus and it felt great! Really great!

We decided to go to Shubie Park since there had been some new caches placed since we were there last. Shubie is one of our favorite local parks with lots of intertwined trails.

We started our trek near the camping area and then down through the lock system, into the no-leash area that circles Lake Banook. The caches we were looking for today were in a series following a trail that skirts a highway and one that we had never walked to the end of before. We followed several different trails back, making the round trip almost 11kms (7 miles).

Here are some more photos:

An exhilarating walk, beautiful weather, wildlife, crisp fresh air and a few caches, it was a perfect morning and a great way to get back into things. What could be better? Stopping for brunch at the MicMac, of course! :)

    Beautiful area, but a little cold for my tastes. I too am just getting back into the swing of things after several months away from the hunt.

    Great blog! I just found it. I haven’t tried geocaching yet, but plan to try it out this summer with my 8 year old son.

    We were walking in Twin Parks Preserve, in Centerport, NY, today and came across a Geocache box for the 1st time.
    We wrote in the log, and put in a $1.00 bill with a “Find George” stamp on it. The next person that finds that box will be very pleasantly surprised!!

    Hi there…. I have put a link for your great site on our website here in Saudi Arabia – then I had some time and started reading your articles….. I am originally from Halifax! What a thrill it was to read this article about Shubie Park – I haven’t been there in almost 10 years! Great photos.

    Regards, Ellie (Mrs me N u)
