It was very warm today and I didn’t have a lot of energy. Originally I had planned a longer walk, but the temperature and my lethargy put paid to that idea. Instead, I spent the morning pottering around half a dozen hides at Stagden Cross, near High Easter. The sun shone on the yellow fields as I walked.
It beat down on the trees as I searched for the caches.
And it made me all hot and bothered until I finally found the illusive last one, which was sitting staring at me from a tree 40ft away from the posted co-ordinates.
I had lunch in Mauro’s Café in Writtle on the way home, and then spent the afternoon relaxing before heading into work for my Night Shift. Tomorrow will be a difficult day for a find, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
When it was grey, grim and pouring with rain this morning, I was doubtful that I would get any sort of walk and had resigned myself to having to use up one of the nearby cache and dash hides for today’s find. But after lunch, the sun came out, and I hot-footed it over to Pleshey to have a look for four recently placed Essex Way Diversion caches.
My first stop, however, was back to the Pleshey Ring Bonus cache which I have DNF’d twice now. I’ve no idea why I made such a hash of it before. With a bit more info from the CO, today I found it quickly.
The sun was beginning to set by the time I finished, but I was pleased to put another 5 caches on the found list. Pleshey is a lovely place, but it’s a pain in the butt to get to, which is why I decided to mop up all the stragglers today.
I’ve just noticed that the final find today makes 1000 caches since I started my geo-streak on 27th July 2015. Yay!
