Do You Letterbox?

It would seem that letterboxing (verb: meaning participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation) is still alive and well. Actually, it might be thriving during this Covid era.

On a day not too long ago, there was a couple sitting in their car at the Village. When I asked if I could help them, they replied with a barrage of questions. They were looking for something....and did I know where it was? They were seeking a letterbox...actually the Canterbury Shaker Village. One of them was very obvious, but had never been found. The other, they could not quite get to...but I did!

Looking for a treasure to find, go to Type in Canterbury and print the clues. Who knew this was right in our backyard. A thousand times I've past them both. Sometimes you just can't see the forest through the trees!
