Description   EN   

This cache is part of my Sandwich, MA series of caches that make up my Girl Scout Gold Award project. This is a bit of a walk from the center of Sandwich so it would be best to drive. There is ample parking and it is free.

This is a virtual cache and once you arrive, take in the views that the "gateway to Cape Cod" has to offer. The Cape Cod Canal walking trail is nearby (runs the entire 6 mile length of the canal) as well as the Cape Cod Canal Visitors' Center which is free and open 10am to 5pm daily from May 1 to October 30.

To log this cache, you must post a photo of yourself next to the Cape Cod Canal Visitors' Center sign.

You can learn more about the history of the Cape Cod Canal by going to the website I created for my Gold Award project:

Cache looks good.  Because of the nature of this series and the fact that we 
try to be flexible, cache was approved despite it being less than 300 feet 
away from another.  Plus, we tend to be more flexible with virtuals.  
FYI, max image size if 500 KB.
Thank you for these caches.  We are honored that you chose to allow us to be 
a part of your Gold Award project.  
Congratulations and Happy Trails!
