I needed to find and Earthcache today for my International Eartcache Day souvenir. The nearest unfound was at Tollesbury, so that’s where I headed. The EC itself was quickly sorted out, then I went for a little walk around the town.
The Lightship is a familiar sight in Tollesbury, so of course I had to make a picture.
Before heading off for my big walk around the Essex 100 Section 4, I needed some fortification, so stopped off at the excellent café near the boatyard for a tasty bacon sarnie and a pot of tea.
Then I was off around the sea wall looking for caches as I went. It would have been quite a walk, but I had taken the geo-bike with me.
Plenty of boats and things to see along the way, and fluffy clouds floating above the salt marshes.
With the familiar shape of Bradwell Power Station in the background, I made quick progress along the sea wall on the bike. Although about half way round I saw a sign saying “no cycling”. Oops. Well, too late now!
It was good to get this section of the Essex 100 ticked off, I’ve been meaning to visit for ages. 16 finds today will do very nicely.
