A Treasure Hunt Outing (Contains Spoilers) [Feb. 10th, 2009|07:17 pm]

So this was my first visit to Safa Park, for my first geocaching experience.


The theme was The Legend of the Cobra!


The three of us got around the park on a bicycle built for four to seven. Austin is feeding "Magic Corn" to Don, which is perfectly normal.


As per the Legend, the ground at Safa Park really is full of holes.


Anybody else reminded of Central Park?


Toy boat, toy boat, toy boat, toy boat, toy boat, toy boat.


Top of a waterfall.


Now, to find that treasure...



This is the highest point in Safa Park. If there were cobras in Dubai, you wouldn't want to walk around here.


I found it!


Don opened it.


There were about 20 signatures, the most recent from less than two weeks ago.


Happy booty seekers. The date palm tree behind us was the location.


There's more to Safa Park. Like this maze.


And this beautiful, beautiful tree.

Lovely pictures again!! That view of the skyscrapers from the park is surreal. It's been more than two years since I last visited Dubai and it will be a while till my next visit, I probably won't recognize it when I do!!

You always take such wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing the fun. And is that a banyan tree? In Dubai of all places?!?! Lovely shot of the light coming through.

But the buildings aren't as pretty!

When did Safa Park get a maze?

It's windows mobile with a free gps software! I'm using an external bluetooth gps as well, so it's way more accurate than most phone gps chips.

A) I wish I'd chosen a phone with GPS rather than thinking PalmOS was still cool

B) I LOVE THAT TREE!
