I had plans with friends downtown, so I took the opportunity to then head to High Park to try and find some of the many boxes there I have yet to find. I can't recall how frequently I've posted about this, but I have a terrible time with the old High Park boxes. They are so hard but I want them so bad!
For those new to Ontario boxing, an event was held in High Park in September of 2009 (almost five years ago!) which, for the record, was before I started letterboxing. Many boxes were planted, lovely, and are still sited to this day.
Nonetheless, High Park being the size it is, changes with time and trails and foliage undermine clues fairly uniformly. As much as you spend in the park, you never really get a full sense of the whole of it and it's full of difficult plants.
I started with a Fiddleheads box and came across the most intriguing entry in a logbook that I've ever seen, here it is:
|Sooo... besides the message, if they weren't looking, why did they have a stamp? Anyone read Mandarin?|
So I ended up back near the Grenadier Cafe, so I tried the Stockyards box and found it full of water. Like full, full. Like full of blue water, full. And in a log with a bee nest in it. So, yeah.
|Full of water. Full.|
Hope you all enjoyed your first day of summer!
