This is easy benchmark for us to start with, we drive by everyday. I haven't been inside yet though.

i drive by this church just about every day the stained glass windows are beautiful - especially the angel holding the anchor

Not too hard :-)

Well here in blue hill I thought I would start benchmarking since the list of traditional caches is limited in the area. I am on call so I can obnly be within 30 minutes of town.

Thanks for this neat diversion
