We are going on a scavenger hunt. Here is the objective today according to the Park and Rec instructions. 10 clocks are placed along the walking trails and facilities at Lakeway City Park. Each clock has a QR code attached. When you find a clock, use the camera on your cell phone to scan the QR code. This will connect you to an online information form. Fill out the online form, and your entry for that clock is complete. You get 1 entry into the prize drawing for EACH clock you find. There are 10 clocks total. Find them all, and you get 10 entries into the prize drawing! Submit all entries by midnight on January 31. The prize drawing will take place on February 1, and winners will be contacted the same day.
We need to be part of this virtual scavenger hunt. We will take the bus to the park and then set up our camp as a base. Of course, we will need food and drink to sustain us in the quest. Today we are serving as an appetizer hot clam chowder and puff pastry cheese puffs. The first entree choice is shrimp and grits with a side salad of assorted baby greens and french vinaigrette dressing. The second is beef wellington, oven-roasted potatoes, and grilled baby root vegetables. For dessert, we have assorted bites of napoleon, baklava, and miniature creme puffs (Yes, I got a special on puff pastry from Costco). In addition to top-shelf liquors, we have for a red a 2017 Duckhorn Merlot Napa Valley Three Palms Vineyard. For the white, a 2018 Hartford Court Chardonnay Russian River Valley.
So, hop on the bus. Our entertainment will be James Taylor today.
Here is the first clock on our hunt. It is labeled number one. It is in a nice place called the cactus garden.
We find number two at the volleyball court.
Number three is by the shelter.
Number four is a reminder to put it here.
Number five is on a pleasant footbridge in the hill.
Number six overlooks the marina.
Number eight is on the bird flyway.
Number nine is near the entrance and welcome center.
Number ten is in the trees at the dog park.
Well, that does it. We have completed the scavenger hunt. Now it is time for food and James Taylor. What’s that you say? We missed number seven? You are so right. The Producer and I searched high and low. We walked the miles of trails, and the elusive number seven remained undescovered. So let’s try to forget the oversight by stuffing ourselves. Here’s James and a wish for a super week.
