Music Mound Letterboxes

I found that there is a set of eight letterboxes near my home that are pretty easy to get to. This is actually a set of seven mini-boxes (stamp only) and one regular box (stamp and log book). It is identified as "The sound of music series" and is located in a local park at a place known as "The Music Mound". This is a nice wooded opening with a stone "Stage" at the distant end that is popular for weddings. In fact my oldest son was married there.

So I set off to explore and see what letter-boxing was really like. I located the first 3 boxes but stopped at that as I do not yet have a personal stamp or log book. I found it to be much fun and the hand carved stamps that I found are really very well done.

I'm hooked, so know design and carve a stamp and decide what to use for a logbook, then I'll be off to see the world.
