FIVE LITTLE LADYBUGS:
Five little ladybugs, climbing on some plants,
Eating the aphids, but not the ants!
The first one said: "Save some aphids for me!"
The second one said: "These are tasty as can be!"
The third one said: "Oh, they're almost gone!"
The fourth one said: "Then it's time to move on!"
The fifth one said: "Come on, let's fly!"
So they opened their wings and flew through the sky.
The most common legend comes from Europe's Middle Ages, when swarms of insects were destroying crops. The farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for her help, and the Ladybugs came to devour the pests and saved their crops.
Henceforth, these little insects were called "The Beetles of Our Lady", which over time was eventually shortened to "Lady Beetles". It is said that the Ladybug's red wings represent the Virgin's cloak, while the black spots are symbolic of her joys and sorrows.

Somewhere on the Eastside of Bremerton, WA. is "Blueberry Park", where you may have a garden and grow your own vegetables. And on a warm school day, you might hear the joyful sounds of children at play.
So, when you come to find this Letterbox, please take your time to enjoy this park and the gardens nearby. You might even consider taking a picnic lunch with you on a warm and sunny day.
Once you have parked your vehicle, proceed to the archway at the entrance to the park. Just beyond, you will find a covered picnic area and a children's play area to the West.
When you are ready, walk along the gravel trail, past the play area on your right. Along the way you will see a wooden bridge on the right, and then a bench for you to rest. A little farther there is a signpost informing you of the benefits of having a wetlands area.
In the distance and Eastward, you will see three tall sentinels. From the signpost, take a bearing of 75 Degrees Magnetic and go to the EGALR ELAMP and look inside.
|Good Luck & Happy Hunting !!!
