Next stop Tettegouche! I have been here several times before so I was just here for geocaching. Turns out the trail to the cache led 0.7 miles to the High Falls location. Bummer. Off I went and actually had trouble down near the falls. The tree cover had me wandering in the woods. I went back up some steps and then saw it next to a rock, not well hidden at all. I grabbed the box and sat on the bench while I went through it. I was signing the log when some girls came up the steps and sat down by me. I was going to wait until they left but then some more girls joined them, followed by some adults. It was a girl scout troop!
Then the adults got to the top of the steps, one of them asked the girls what time it was.
It was getting late so I hurried back. Mom was getting worried about me because I had been gone so long (imagine if she hadn’t been with me at all!). We were hungry so we went to the wayside area for a picnic. All the tables were in the sun so we brought out chairs and sat in the shade for our PB&Js.
Mom wanted to hike the Shovel Point trail since she hadn’t done it before.
We didn’t really have any other plans so we went to a little rock beach in Silver Bay to read and search for agates. I read about a page and then fell asleep. After my nap I went looking for agates. I searched for a while and finally found one! It was small but definitely an agate. I searched for a long time afterward and didn’t find any more. I figure the beaches here probably get pretty picked over.
