As it turned out, we were wrong: Since we left the island, five more people found this little cache stashed at Red Head Harbour near St Pete’s Harbour, PEI.
So, we were determined to find it ourselves this year!
Once we had safely arrived on the other side, we stowed our bikes between two lobster shacks, and began snooping around.
Our geocaching experience over the past year had taught us what a “bison” looks like (indeed, we had found one at confederation bridge, on our way home, at the end of last summer, and several since that time). We had also experienced the frustration of GPS coordinates that—for whatever reason—were slightly “off”.
So we reconsulted the information and clue given on the geocaching website, and widened our search circle.
It was not long before Alex located the tiny cache, cleverly hidden I won’t say where (so that other cachers reading this blog won’t have their experience ruined by a spoiler!), and we celebrated our victorious discovery with smiles and photos before heading back – this time along the main road, and stopping to visit a friend who had just picked a bunch of wild blueberries to share (yum!) -- to Morell for icecream on our way home.
