Letterboxing near Cambridge ON

June 3rd was a very lovely day to head out for some letterboxing in the Cambridge area.  Our very first stop was Chickadee Chickadee in Ayr, ON.  We took along a bag of sunflower seeds, hoping to coax some chickadees out to visit.  No luck . . . but we did meet a very friendly chipmunk who appreciated our treats.  We left the bag of seeds on the bridge so the shy birds could come out and enjoy a snack.  Oh yeah, we found the letterbox as well . . . LOL.

Our next stop was to hunt for the Lady of the North in Glen Morris ON.  I know this may sound weird but this was the best box we never found.  Never in a million years would we have even known about these amazing historic ruins if we hadn't been searching for a letterbox.  I took many many photos of this beautiful area.

Our next search was for Sisters in Cambridge, ON.  Sadly this box seems to be missing as well.  Of course, the whole back of the host tree was also missing! 

Our last stop of the day was another hidden gem that we found while looking for Troll Bridge:  Billy Goat Bridge.  I nearly laughed myself silly trying to get Hal navigated to the correct step.   But we found it!!!  

So a 50:50 day for hunting letterboxes but that is okay.  It was a beautiful day, we had a lot of fun together and made some new memories.
