Puddle Hunting

Puddle Hunting

A couple of weeks ago we set out for our first attempt at geocaching. However Reuben and Orla quickly decided that they wanted to find treasure of a different kind ... a muddy puddle big enough for both of them to jump up and down in.

So dressed head to toe in their Spotty Otter waterproofs they went in search of the perfect puddle. We saw lots of puddles, each of which was carefully examined for size, depth, and splashability, but none were quite right.

Then after a short break to eat the supplies they'd been carrying in their LittleLife back packs they finally found it ... the perfect puddle. After a quick check of its suitability they both started jumping up and down giggling. They didn't stop for a good few minutes, building up quite an audience in the process. It was great to see them having so much fun, safe in the knowledge that they were warm and dry. I was just a little jealous that I couldn't join in.

As for geocaching, we'll have to try that another day.
