A Sunny Day in the Park

'A quick cache before lunch' is what we said one Saturday afternoon. Hah! Spent many hours wandering from park to park in Sunnyvale. Found most of the clues pretty easily, except for EE, which we put in the wrong coordinates and found ourselves wandering around the 3Com headquarters - oops! Didn't figure this out until after we gave up and went home very hungry. Tried to finish this up the next day. Found the X, but couldn't find the cache. Ran out of time and aborted for the day.

Tried again this weekend and were stimied on our first attempt by the presence of some cops trying to get some hunters who were shooting birds. Came back later after biking out to Rebecca Cat Cache and still couldn't find the cache near the X.

We were giving up and going home when we found the REAL X, very tatterred and barely recognizable. Found the cache soon after and we were relieved to have this one finally done!

Took the Star Wars Yoda/Darth Vader cube and left a very apropo Sun pin.
