Hiking Beresford Trail {Florida}

Dec 17, 2012

We love using weekends for outdoor activities like hiking and geocaching. That's exactly what we did Saturday. It's been a long while because our van died in September. This was a much needed break from the "stir crazy" feeling we've all been having lately. I'm sharing a few photos from our day.

Making friends on the playground

Studying a tree (and now I can't recall the name of it!)
...but it looks like this in December
Raccoon or Opossum track? I can't tell.
Christmas Wreath Lichen
Moss. It occurs to me this is not something we've learned to identify yet
Leaf of the Sand Live Oak. Turned upside down, it resembles an
elongated bowl.

I wonder what lives in there. Rabbits? Snakes? 
Bracket fungi...Another thing we've never studied.
We found the geocache!

White-tailed Deer track
What kinds of things does your family enjoy doing on the weekends?
Happy Homeschooling!


  1. I love your article. Many think that home school needs to be like a classroom. But when you home school, the whole world is our classroom.

  2. You're right. The world IS our classroom. It takes many of us (including myself) to realize that.

    I love this!!! There are so many days where it would be better to escape the house. It's amazing what a change of scenary and getting into God's creation can do for our souls! Thank you so much for linking up with me today! Ps. My boys love to geocache too!

  4. Thanks, Erica! Glad you enjoyed the post. I enjoyed the day we made those memories. ;-)
