Barontoo's Blogspot

Welcome on the webblog of Barontoo, the first Belgian blog listed as a WAYMARK. I started this blog in July 2005 in my mothertongue Dutch.

To do so click on the 1st link in the left frame hereunder and click then on "Visit Waymark (Post log)". Thanks!

Sadness and happyness

This day started rather sad. My uncle Maurice, the man of my mother's sister, died a few days before and today we went to his funeral. After the funeral repast we left the family for our cottage in Bredene. We were invited by Merel, to join other geocachers for a superb barbecue party in his house in Blankenberge. We were happy to meet of course Merel and En_ik, hh1 and Topaz I, Speerpunt and Yelista, Datts, Inkesa from the Neteherlands, both last with their partners, and last but not least the Black_Jack_Team from Germany. It was a very nice evening full of geocaching stories and a lot of beautiful geocoins!

During the 4 days stay I was their guide and we stayed in a rather good hotel in Ovifat, nearby the German border. I was happy that I could find just before dinner 3 caches of the Vennbahn. Still 40 to go ...

A cottage in Bredene

Today we became the owners of a small cottage in a holiday park in Bredene at the Belgian coast. From now we will come almost every weekend to our cottage and I will have the possibility to search some caches along the coast and in the region of Bruges.
