Day #359 – Waterloo Wander

Trad: 4 Earth: 1
Walked: 5.3 miles

I was back in London today, on one of the hottest days of the year so far, for a meeting in Millbank. Afterwards, I took the opportunity to find the recently-placed Earthcache at the Buxton Memorial Fountain. It’s a location I know well but the EC has only been out a few weeks.

Well one little earthcache didn’t seem like enough, so I took a wander around the Waterloo area to bag a few more urban hides.

The most surprising find wasn’t a cache – but this rooftop camel on the way to Side Tracked Waterloo!

My poor feet were killing me, as I’d really worn the wrong shoes for a long walk, but I trudged on towards Waterloo bridge to pick up the Waterloo Sunset nano which I had DNF’d a while back – basically due to my incompetence, I had been looking at the wrong sign! An easy spot this evening, which was great.

Eventually I hobbled back to the tube station and caught a train home, weary but satisfied with the evening’s expedition.
