Today’s target was a nice little series of 9 caches by Indy Walker, set in North Benfleet. I didn’t leave home until early afternoon, but since sunset is around 4:30pm now the clocks have changed, I knew I had to get a move on to get them all found in daylight.

The start of the walk was along a lovely tree-lined byway.

I took a brief detour from the 9-cache loop to find Geisha’s Gallop (by the same CO) – a rather cool little owl hanging in a tree!

One cache was guarded by a troll at this unusually-constructed bridge.

Another hide had had several DNF’s logged previously, but I dug a big deeper than most and voilà! There it was!

I found all but one of the caches – I have suspicions that the last one is gone. It was getting dark by the time I was able to look properly, but sometimes the hunch that it’s missing is strong and you don’t keep searching forever.
