The Beauty That Is Lantzville
On August 11, 2012 The GO! Team ended up in Nanaimo for a surprise birthday party for Just Leafy's dad. But when traveling to anywhere as a geocacher, geocaching must be involved. And this was no exception at all! We knew we would arrive nice and early, so I checked GSAK (Geocaching Swiss Army Knife) for caches that would not require too much driving and not any bushwhacking. The area that appealed to me was Lantzville, and it did not disappoint!
Lantzville is a wonderful little community, just north of Nanaimo. The town itself has an array of nice little shops, while the outlaying area is peppered with fantastic parks and breathtaking beaches. And all over and nicely spaced apart for walking is a series of caches on the beach and in the parks.
A really BIG thanks goes to BigBlueMarble and her daughter ChickadeeRose whose caches made up the majority of what was found. All of them in excellent condition and filled with great swag.
But a thank you goes to eveyone that has hidden caches in the area, Just Leafy and I had an excellent time finding them all!
