The City & The Thames

Trad: 3 Multi: 1 Puzzle: 2
Walked: 10.0 miles

Loads more walking today, before and after work. I started close to Liverpool Street by finally locating the elusive puzzle, O Where O Where Can That Little Cache Be? It had been bugging me for ages! The log was pretty full but I managed to cram my name in.

Another puzzle which had been outstanding for too long was Beck, based around the London Underground map. The other day, I finally made some progress with the solve and was rewarded with the little devil when I searched the correct spot this morning. Very satisfying to have ticked it off, at last!

Work took up the majority of the day, but I went for a walk afterwards, firstly around Surrey Row and then to the north bank of the Thames to look for a couple of Swan to Canary series. The Shard and Tower Bridge looked impressively illuminated this evening.

My final success was the Livchurch Street multi, which I had previously DNF’d but luckily had a brainwave about this evening. Then a weary walk back to Liverpool Street to get the train home.

Day #183 – Half Year Geostreak

Trad: 1 Multi: 1
Walked: 5.4 miles

I was working in London today and hadn’t had time to find anything during daylight, so thought I would try a couple of caches close to Liverpool Street on the way home. Since I arrived having just missed a train, I also had some time to kill.

The first one on the list was erauqS erihsnoveD, which was a quick find despite the fact I’m not usually any good at night caching. There was lovely old Georgian architecture around several sides of the square.

I still had a while before my train was due, so moved along to Spitalfields Market to pick up Sherlock 1 – The game is afoot! It’s one in a series of six old mulit/virtuals which eventually lead to a physical hide. I had found one of them ages ago, so thought it was time I went for another. The information was quickly found, and photo taken, job done.

And that brings up my 183rd day-in-a-row geostreak. Half a year – will I make it to 366 days? We’ll see – my next milestone is 200 which which should occur on 11th Feb, all being well. Here’s to the next half year!
