Seneca Falls Caches and our first hide.

We visited Seneca Falls NY to visit family recently but in some of the down moments we got a chance to do some caching. We even got to hide our very first cache.
A Tribute to our Veterans
The first cache we found, we have been scoping out ever since we thought about getting a GPS and learned about Geocaching. We new basically where this Cache would be hidden and even looked for it. The park where this cache is located is a nice little park in the center of Seneca Falls right next to what was the old High School. They have even put out little stations for disposing of our waste, Very Nice!
We frequently walked by this park wondering if we would be able to find the cache hidden here. Finally we had our chance.
We had a busy week enjoying the Cottage on Cayuga lake and then we went to stay with family where we were cooped up indoors too much. So Josh took us out for a walk on a whim, and we brought the GPS. We figured that the cache was hidden on the cannon from the first time we learned there was a cache in this park. But it took a little time and we did use the hint which led us right too it! Thanks for the Cache MaMa Bear. Expect us to be after other caches you have hidden in the Seneca Falls, Auburn and the rest of the Finger Lakes since we visit often.

A Chance Encounter.
We encountered these ladies on many of our walks in SF as well. This is another nice little area that SF has done a great job at making welcome for dogs. The only problem is how close this is too the street. But it is a great photo-op. We are two confident strong willed girls that were happy to pose with these great ladies. Now for a little history
In May 1851, there was a chance encounter on the streets of Seneca Falls, which forever altered the struggle of Women's Rights. Amelia Jenks Bloomer introduced Susan B. Anthony to Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The friendship that was forged between Stanton and Anthony gave direction and momentum to the seventy-two year struggle for womens suffrage which culminated on August 26, 1920 in the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Neither woman lived to see this happen.
Our owner when to Elizabeth Cady Staton Middle School in Seneca Falls and has also helped with the 150th anniversary woman's rights festivities that occured in SF.
This is a great place for a cache and again we thank MaMa Bear for providing us with some entertainment, education and exercise when we visit SF.

Our First Hide... First Cache for Linnaea
Although Linnaea is a little too young to be helping us with caching we thought that since she was baptized in this little country church that it would be a great place to hide a cache in her honor. We have never done this before and have been planning to for some time!
We decided to use an old plastic water bottle that Josh doesn't use anymore because of the BPTs. Do you think that this is a great recycling use for wide mouth plastic water bottles?
There was a great place to hide the cache at this church that makes it a wonderful quick grab for people passing through. We just hope that no one interrupts a church service to find it.
We thought about hiding the cache in the Cemetary but we didn't have a magnetic cache container or a good way to camouflage our container. But the handicap access ramp worked beautifully. We hope that many people come to visit this cache and enjoy the Beauty of the Central NY area.
Enjoy! Thanks for Reading!
