Letterboxing with Lily
We are letterbixing today at Devil's Hopyard in East Haddam. The theme of the stamps we are looking for is Hobbies.
Letterboxing is a really fun and easy way to have an adventure! Clues lead you to hidden containers that have a stamp and log book inside. Take with you your own notebook and stamp, and you can leave your mark and message in the log book you find, and collect all the stamps from your Letterboxing adventures in your own book. Clues and more information on letterboxing can be found at: http://www.letterboxing.org/
This is the first of four boxes, Baseball. The picture of the stamp is below.
It is a Yankee Shrine.
Lily finding number two, Music.
Number three, a horseshoe for Equestrian.
And number 4 at the bottom of a pile of rocks was a heart for TLC; a little off theme on this one?
Here are what the stamps looked like (the baseball stamp is upside down).
Back to where we started.

Wizards in the Woods
Wizard Lily and Wizard Shelby
Wizard Shelby turned Wizard Lily into a cow
Looks like they stupified George! (For you non-Harry Potter readers- that just means they stunned him and he is immobile.)
Our site for lunch

The crew: George, Alison and Jeff
neat rock walls all fallen over and tumbling. i just love tumbling rock walls.
George reaches the top! We've been waiting for you! (He said he stopped to pee but we know he just needed to cathch his breath.)
Fuzzy, but I like the picture anyway
With a bottle of wine and steak, sausage and chicken going on the fire, what else could we need?
Jeff seems content!
The table that Alison and Heather built. (Though we can't take credit for the paper towel holder; wait, yes i can, it's my blog!)
Buddies with their Hogan
We are up in Haddam Neck, a little north of the Salmon River. Jeff used to go pheasant hunting along the cliffs here. There used to be a resort hotel type place and a ferry, and tobacco fields. Then the hotel burned down and people stopped using the land. We didn't go near where the hotel was but I'd like to next time we go up that way. Instead we went up! and it was a beautiful view. And a beautiful day.
