    I went over to my mothers house yesterday and decided to take the kids letterboxing. I went online to the letterboxing site and low and behold, all of the letterboxes in her town were hidden by our own BostonRott!
    Thanks Gretchen so much for hiding them for us to find. The kids absolutely love finding them and I like getting them out and about!! We were unable to find the chickadee and the one behind the soccer field. (We found the opening in the trees, but couldn't find the box). I would also like one more clue for the 1984 border crossing. Is it watershed related?
    A great day was had by all!!

  4. Wow Kelly, I've not yet met another 'boxing photographer, that's SO cool!! We'll have to try to plan an outing together. :biggrin:

    I will have to check on Shrubbery, I do hope it's not gone, it was one of my favorites (b/c of the story that accompanies the box). It had been moved once by someone (hidden deeper), but I always worried that the locals would find/destroy it. :frown:

    Chicadee, someone else recently had a hard time with, but then a find was reported the next day. I may need to go check that one too, to be sure it didn't migrate.

    As to the border crossing.........look at the Letterboxer's boxes in Medfield. Once you figure one of them out, the others will start coming together. My box was placed as a tribute to them (and a way to anonymously pass along some Shaw's Turkey points last Fall). :biggrin: Yes, it involves a watershed area. :smile:

    I do have some intended for Holliston, but with the new baby, haven't carved or planted yet. :redface:

    Capt Metcalf was replanted a few months ago, as his original hiding place was stump-ground. A local 'boxer found it and let me know what happened. I was greatful for their good will and help. :smile:
     
  5. These pictures are terrific! It looks like it was sunny (which I sometimes have trouble shooting in), but your exposures all look great. The one of the girl picking flowers is my favorite - very cute! I might have preferred see the front of her, but I still really like it how it is.
