My BFF lives near the corner of a busy intersection in a small town. Her front window looks out over a good portion of
the area and we sit here over coffee and watch what's going on. It's fairly entertaining. Directly across the street
is a bank..well, it use to be a bank but frequently sheds its facade and becomes another business entity.
We watched for months as people would park their cars in the lot and begin combing the area for something....obviously
it was something small because they would go over and over the area; around the trees, into the bushes, back and forth,
back and forth. The scale of the area they would examine was quite small compared to the overall size of the property,
yet we couldn't figure it out.
J stopped over one day when he got out of work and people were there once more looking for something and we explained to him
what we had been watching for months and asked what were they looking for? He said they were geocaching.
He said that it was a game of sorts that people play. And that's as far as we got to participating. Watching others.
Whatever it is that they are looking for must be fairly small. And I still don't get it unless it's like participating
in a "Scavenger Hunt".
One can exchange treasures. Interesting.

"Geocemetery". I like the sound of that better than I do when saying "Celebrity Grave Hunter". Or maybe Geotaphaphile.

We went to Chappaquiddick to look up some of my Native American ancestors graves. It turned out, they'd dug up almost all of the old graves. They turned the area into a 'Brand New' cemetery. They even built a stone wall using some of the grave stones. The only old grave left, was my direct ancestor's and only because her grave was on the edge of the old cemetery and partially wooded.
