Little Chapel in the Woods

The weather was so nice yesterday that it seemed a shame not to go out and enjoy it.

We headed to Oirschot, a town not too far from here, to do a geocache. 's-Heerenvijvers is an estate dating back to the 1600s. Now it's mostly an open forest with trails, but evidences of the fence still exist in places.

We came across this kapelletje (literally "little chapel") along the way.

These little chapels are pretty common in the south of The Netherlands where Catholicism is the more dominant religion. Oftentimes you'll see them along the roadside. Here's a close up of the inside.

We did about a 3 mile walk, solving puzzles along the way, and found our cache. It was a good day.

Our weather was awful yesterday and it cant seem to make up it's mind today. I love the photos you took! The little chapel is so neat looking.

So what do you do with the cache when you find it? do you keep whats inside,add something else,re-hide it? I dont know alot about it but it sounds like fun! love the photo of you!
