So let’s get on the bus.
The parks department gave us the first set of clues. Here they are.
“Let’s SWING into action with this first clue!
On the lower level of City Park, there is a popular place to play. Stand at the blue post that has 2 seats on each side, and you have found your starting point.”
Let’s see. Blue pole two seats on either side. This is it.
“Set your compass to 100 degrees, put Red Fred in the Shed, and follow your arrow approximately 100 paces.”
100 degrees. Check. 100 paces. Check
“You have to get to the root of things to find the next clue.
Wondering if you are close? If you spot a strip of red tape nearby, you know you are in the right area!”
There is a red strip of tape.
This is what 100 paces look like. The blue pole is way back there.
Getting to the root of things. There is a box there.
The next clue.
240 degrees. Check.
125 paces, and there is a red marker.
Searching the nearby trees. We searched all the trees near and far and did not get the next clue. This finishes us for the day. But I will contact the Parks Department and find out what happened to the clue.
Stay and enjoy the food and music. We’ll pick it up next week. Hope you have a good one.
