Geocache Description:


When ya find a park that has no treasure what else can you do but get one in thar, yar.

I found several parks in the area conspicuously void of caches and decided to put out a few easy ones. Besides, I need to take a break from the puzzles for a spell and place some tenable caches before I get put up by my fellow cachmates for making their caching adventures so danged adventurous!

Hard for me to set a cache without adding in a little bit of something for good measure, however. So, rather than bore you with dry Van Zeeland family history I thought I'd just include a really cool map of the place where the name originated. And this brief bit of info from Wiki:

Zeeland, also called Zealand in English, is a province of the Netherlands. The province, located in the south-west of the country, consists of a number of islands (hence its name, meaning "sea-land") and a strip bordering Belgium. Its capital is Middelburg. Its population is about 380,000 and its area is about 2930 kmÇ, of which almost 1140 kmÇ is water.

Large parts of Zeeland are below sea level. The last great flooding of the area was in 1953. Tourism is an important economic activity. Its sunny beaches make it a popular holiday destination in the summer. Most tourists are Germans. In some areas, the population quadruples in the summer.

The coat of arms of Zeeland shows a lion half-emerged from water, and the text "luctor et emergo" (Latin for "I struggle and I emerge").
