Pirate Treasure Hunt at Spot Pond

We got a free boat rental pass for Spot Pond from the library. This year we went with a canoe – MUCH better and easier for Papa. The boys were excellent mini buccaneers.

After passing Skull Rock and managing to avoid the Tick Tock Croc we went ashore at Treasure Beach to look for an X.

We were unsuccessful, so we tanked up on Oreo treasure on the beach.

A little bit more exploration, then back to the dock. The pond is lovely, with little islands, little coves, big rocks, and it’s quiet, even right beside the Interstate and with planes flying over… We saw some excellent fish too, most pan fish, but one was a foot long.
