Day #302 – Greenwich Peninsula Promenade

Multi: 2 Puzzle: 1 Challenge: 8 Earth: 1
Walked: 9.1 miles

I drove back from Kent this morning (getting stuck in an awful jam for the Dartford Tunnel) as I had to be in London late afternoon for a client meeting. Thankfully, there was enough slack in my schedule that I wasn’t late. In fact, I had time for the Very Special Stones in London Earthcache, the long-solved Freemasons’ Hall puzzle and a quick Multi, The Dancer, near Covent Garden before my meeting.

All went well and I was out by 5pm. That meant I found myself in the Capital with a lovely sunny evening on my hands. Time to go caching!

I decided to head to the Greenwich peninsular around the 02, to pick up a collection of RubyShoos’ Challenge caches which I’m qualified for. There were a few for which I hadn’t, and I didn’t bother signing those (I find it easier to keep track if I just claim the ones I can actually log at the time). When I’ve qualified for the others, I’ll have another trip this way to collect the rest.

The weather was quite windy but at least the sun was out most of the time. I walked almost all the way to the Thames Barrier by the time I had finished.

Of course, the walk back was quicker as I wasn’t stopping to look for pots. A grand evening’s walk and entertainment – cheaper than the Theatre!
