Day #210 – Harwich & Dovercourt Dawdle

I had a good excuse to go to Dovercourt and Harwich today for Mr BEASTMARSTA’s latest Mini Meat #3. It was a good turnout despite the blustery conditions.

Before the event, I found several caches as drive-bys and short walks. Afterwards, I teamed up with Sidsgranma and Kareninwb to find some more around the town. The first was overlooking a large pond with swans, but they didn’t take much notice of us as we searched!

Harwich Sea Defences was a stinker, thankfully one of us had already found it, so with the aid of my mirror-on-a-stick, it didn’t take us too long to locate it again and sign for the two who hadn’t visited before.

Eventually I left the ladies to head off to Dovercourt in their car, while I walked back towards mine, picking up a few more stragglers along the promenade. I enjoyed The Light’s Gone Out – not trouble for me on a grey, windy Sunday afternoon, but I can imagine it being a nightmare during the summer when the place is heaving with muggles.

So it was a great haul of finds and apart from the biting wind, the weather turned out better than predicted. I didn’t get wet, either – which is the biggest result of the lot!
