      Top 10 Geocaches of 2020 - who will be #1???

       

      Each day Nana & I go out geocaching,
      we of course, award favorite points to those
      geocaches which we think deserve them.

      Water Tower in Nassau

      And, as some of you know, if we find a special geocache that really
      makes us smile, we award it the "COVETED" SNAP!!!
      Cache of the Day Award.


      Then, at the beginning of the next year (right about now),
      Nana & I sit down and review those winners and select
      one very special geocache and award it the....
      "SUPER-COVETED" Cache of the Year Award!!!
