Out with the Little Blues . . .

We had the two youngest grandsons for a sleepover this past week and they jumped at the chance to do some letterboxing.  We had FINALLY solved Les Miserables and were looking forward to the find.  When we found the location in Paris the box was gone.  It looks like there has been some flooding in the area.  Perhaps that is how it got lost.  If anyone has an image of the stamp, I would really appreciate a copy as a keepsake.  I'm not too bright at solving clues apparently and it took hours to solve the clue . . . sigh . . .


The boys are used to the occasional attempt and don't get upset about it.  They understand it is all part of letterboxing.  Of course lunch at the Cobblestone Public House in Paris cheered them up.  Good food and service.  The kids menu is excellent.  I saw the waitress serving salads at another table and talked Taylor into splitting a salad with me -- a "Cobb"lestone Salad . . . LOL.  Hal couldn't finish his hamburg.


We always like to make sure to have at least one find on the rare occasions we can letterbox with the grandsons so we headed to Cambridge to find The Troll Bridge.  We tiptoed carefully over the bridge so we didn't wake up the troll.  A nice hike and easy find.  And to add to the fun we found 50 is Nifty Hitchhiker #11.  We could see a storm coming in so we headed for home.
