I've been having these balance troubles for the past couple of weeks, but I have noticed some slight improvements - either from the exercises or the antihistamines or a combination of both. I'd say my equilibrium skills have improved to about a grade of C from the D- I had a week ago. Hopefully this week, I'll get them back up to an A.
In the meantime, I was going a little bonkers from having to limit my activities in the outside world. Yesterday was a nice day and was beckoning. I gently mentioned to Magnum,
"I GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE!"
Meego was at an all-day marching band clinic, so the two of us decided to go for a relatively easy hike in Pulpit Rock Open Space with hopes of logging a few geocaches. Good idea!
We've hiked in this area before, but the geocaching took us to some places we've never been. I didn't even know this chimney remnant from an old hermit house was back there. This is where we found the aptly named "Santa Missed his Mark"
Like that particular cache, the names of many geocaches hold clues. As we looked for "Camo Tater", I was wondering, was it hidden in a potato patch? Was it an actual potato? Close.
Yup, I'd say that's a camo tater.
Another was in a beautiful spot in a tree near the edge of a cliff. My phone gps told me to go another 16 feet forward. I don't think my phone gps likes me very much.
See the cache?
See the cliff?
See our moniker in the log?
All in all, it was a nice couple of hours at about the limit of my staying upright, and the weather held up nicely for us too. Now to just get off this boat!
