Luckily we had a tiny patch of icy snow left in the front garden after the brief spell of snow we had at the weekend that melted again soon after for me to do this photo.
As those of you who have followed me for a while, you’ll know that I enjoy geocaching, which is essentially a treasure hunt using a GPS. One of my fellow cachers I see quite regularly, normally at the supermarket when I’m doing the weekly shop, had bumped into another fellow cacher who had picked up a travelbug that she had wanted to get to me whilst on it’s travels. Travelbugs are trackable items, normally like a dogtag, with a unique code on, to which the owner attaches an object before releasing it into the big outdoors to be found by other cachers as it moves around the country or even the world being discovered.
So what was special about this travelbug, that this other cacher wanted it to visit me……well it has a LEGO minifg attached to it, and she knows that I love LEGO and also take photos of minifigs…….she was there with a few others when I did the one about the Lost World last year.
So Nanook the explorer was deposited into my care until I place him in another cache to continue on his journey. So of course whilst he was here, and we had just enough snow for a backdrop, he had to visit his cousin Nootaikok.
I did hope to have more Lego icecubes, however it seems since I made a tray of them up ready for when we had some snow, someone in the house has been using them in their drinks. I mean whatever next! At least they left me 3 to use, so could have been worse
