Pathway Haiku

Follow the right path-
Longitude and latitude.
Found! Geocache there!

This week's theme for One Deep Breath's weekly challenge is Pathway. Last night, I was tucked in bed last night ready to bag some z's when a little 5-7-5 prose hit me and I had to get up and write it down before falling asleep because I knew I'd never remember it otherwise. However, after looking through my photo bank today, I decided to create a little haiku dedicated to geocaching.

If you're not familiar with geocaching, visit their website for more detailed information. But essentially, it's a scavenger/treasure hunt. On the website, they give you the coordinates, and with your GPS, you find the treasure. You can see most of our finds on our family website here.

This photo was taken a few weeks ago with our nieces, geocaching in Morro Bay.

Geocaching sounds fun, but I looked at some sites and they refer only to North America :(
I do orienteering, that is fun too. It's nice to see all hte different takes on the haiku theme

What a fun of-the-moment Haiku and photo! And geocaching sounds like great entertainment for the family to share. I love treasure hunts - hence my constant search for antique treasures amidst junk.
