Day #134 – Mersea Meander

Whereigo: 1 Multi: 1
Walked: 6.6 miles

A few days ago I noticed I would qualify for an interesting Challenge cache if I could keep up a streak of 15 days (not a problem) AND find one Puzzle, Multi, Virtual, Letterbox, Trad, Church Micro, Challenge, Whereigo and Earth cache during the streak (only one type to be used each day).

Having looked at my recent finds I realised that the period starting on 24th November had in fact already accomplished most of this – I just needed a Whereigo and an Earth to complete the requirements.

The nearest Whereigo accessible by public transport was the Mersea Island Meander, set for the UK Essex Mega week, which I had not had time to find then. So a bus, train and another bus later (nearly two hours!) and I was standing at the start point with my iPhone app fired up and started following the instructions.

I was mighty pleased that it all worked OK and I found the pot at the end, after about an hour’s stroll around West Mersea.

It’s only the second Whereigo I’ve done, but there are a few more of interest not too far away, so I may give them a go in the near future.

There was just time to bag the Multi, Watertower #21 before the bus was due to take me home again.
