        New letterbox: The Domedreamers\' Christmas Card 2017

        Clues:
        Merry Christmas from the Domedreamers once again! Our tradition continues; we have hidden letterboxes with the stamps we used to make our Christmas cards this year, and hopefully this year they will not disappear before Christmas like the box last year. The boxes will be available only from Christmas Eve through Epiphany (please do not contact us in July and tell us that it is missing).

        The box is in Manchester again, in the same general area, but a new park this time. Go to Charter Oak Park, on Charter Oak Street. When you pull into the park there will be a stop sign, turn left and park, and then enter the music garden. Play a few tunes if you like, and then head around/through the garden to the left and walk between the pond and the baseball field. Go left when you get to the path along the river, and cross over the bridge. Then go left again and head down the trail. When you get to the next bridge, don�t go over it, go off the trail to the right of it. There is a fallen tree on the ground running parallelish to the path; the first box is under the root end of the tree. There is only one logbook in the series, and it is in this box. This one is a fairly big stamp, and this box has ink in it.

        After you�ve rehidden the box nicely, you can go over the bridge. Immediately you are going to veer left heading toward a small building that says �Well #3� on it, though you are not actually going TO the building. This is where I should mention that when we hid the box there was snow on the ground, so I don�t know if the road/path you�ll be walking on at this point is paved or not. Anyway, you don�t want to get to the building so much as the area in front of it; two roads converge there (the one you just walked down, and another one), and you want to stand at the point of the woods where the two roads converge, with your back to the building. You�ll have a tree right in front of you. If you look to the left behind this tree you�ll find a multi-sister tree a few steps away, and the second box is nestled between the trunks of this tree. This box does not have ink in it, and it needs to be stamped in yellow. It will not be obvious where to stamp this one with the rest of the design, so use your artistic flair. Maybe stamp it several times, like we did.

        Now you can return to the music park to play the music you just stamped in your book, or you can continue on for more of a walk.

        You may run into The Domedreamers if you go to do the box on Christmas day, as we will be accompanying family who are going to search for the boxes that day.

        MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD HIKE!!!!
