We are moving into a beautiful time of year in New England! Its a great time to move in the outdoors!
If you have not already, it’s a wonderful time to try Geocaching. This is like a big worldwide scavenger hunt that turns taking a walk outside into a game. Geocaches are hidden boxes of various shapes and sizes in locations all over the world. They contain a log book where you can add your signature to the list of other people who found the box. There are small treasures in each box, you can take one and leave one for the next person. As you can imagine this is a great physical activity to do with kids, or anyone who likes to add a sense of adventure and purpose to a walk!
Simply check the website for more information and to find Geocaches in your area. Its fun, free and active!
Add your comments if you have more information about Geocaching to share!
Keep Moving, Be Well, Enjoy!
