Day #341 – Steyning Saunter

Trad: 1 Multi: 4 Puzzle: 1 Whereigo: 1
Walked: 8.4 miles

After a lovely sociable evening staying with my muggle friends Ken & Carolyn last night, myself and Ken decided to take a walk around Upper Beeding and Steyning this morning. Ken loves walking and talking, and doesn’t mind stopping so I can stick my head in the bushes every now and then! I found lots of caches and it was great to catch up, us not having seen each other for over a year.

There was a good mix of series – Village Signs, Church Micros…

… and a most enjoyable tour of Steyning’s quaint architecture thanks to an informative Whereigo. Even Ken learned something, and he’s lived in the area for years!

We found the final pot and then retired to the pub for lunch and a well-earned pint. What a grand way to spend the morning and early afternoon.

We found a few more trads on the way back to Ken’s house and then put our feet up for an hour or two, before heading off to Henfield Cricket Club, where both Ken and Carolyn are very active members. It was the Henfield Cup Twenty20 Final this evening – and it was great to just sit at the boundary, drinking a beer, watching the cricket. It’s rare that I just sit and “do nothing” (usually out caching, or when at home I’ll be noodling on the computer or watching telly). But the evening was a perfect way to wind down. And we were very pleased that Henfield were the victorious team, although it was a close game.
