Apollonia National Park

We spent some time this afternoon at the ruins in Apollonia National Park and even found a geocache! The area was originally settled by Persians in 586 BCE. The Crusader Fortress (circa 1100 CE)sits atop a cliff facing the sea.  There isn’t much left of it now, but you can see wheresome rooms were, including the dining room, kitchens, granary, and a lime kiln. I wasn’t really on the ball with the camera, but here is what I got:

    I introduced my children to geocaching at a young age. They absolutely love the adventure. Sadly, I could never offer them the sights and experiences that you guys have afforded Liam. 😉

    Roby, the thing I love most about geocacheing is discovering things right in your home town that you never would have known about otherwise. That also makes it ideal for travel because caches will lead you to places that aren’t in any of the guide books. 🙂

    And don’t worry… you are offering your kiddos some pretty amazing stuff yourself. ❤
