Geocaching Fever and Maple Syrup Time

I have been busy with my Geocaching hobby.  Link on right for those interested.  I placed a cache and found one last night.  The one I found was at a canoe carry access point to the Kaydeross creek. Kaydeross is the old Native American word for "creek that winds all over and goes nowhere".  Haha, no thats just a joke.  Its actually a major tributary to Saratoga Lake and does actually go all over!  I saw a man collecting sap from a maple tree yesterday.  He said they are flowing really good.  I'm sure this years syrup will be great!  The sap is collected from the trees and boiled down into a syrup.  There are several "sugar shacks" around the area.  Sarah's visit at her Dad's is going well.  She was having a problem sleeping by herself, so she climbed into Dad's bed.  I'm sure they will have a fun weekend.  I miss her though.  Gotta go to work.  Have a great weekend everyone!  Linda

I visited a maple syrup farm in Vermont. We saw all the rubber pipes connected to the trees to drain them, it was very interesting! Glad Sarah is having fun, she'll be back soon enough! Jeannette xx

The only syrup I have ever seen made was at the syrup sopping festival.  It is cane syrup.  I have pics in my photo journal of that.  Glad Sarah is enjoying her time with her Dad.  Wish I had more time for my hobbies!

Hugs and prayers!
