Are we really staying for 8 days in a county park in which we had no previous knowledge? Yes, and we are loving it! We are currently staying in Wickham Park, Melbourne, FL.

Since I usually check for GeoCaches when I arrive in a new area, I was amazed to find out that there are probably 35-40 GeoCaches within the boundaries of the park.

If you're thinking that it sounds as though we like this park, you'd be correct. It's very relaxing here and a great place to just get out and walk around.
Thanks for dropping by to take a look!
