Day #168 – Mistley Meander

Trad: 17 Earth: 1 Multi: 2 Event: 1
Walked: 9.2 miles

Mr BEASTMARSTA was hosting the first of his monthly flash mob events for the year in Mistley today, so I took the opportunity of arriving early and finding plenty of hides as I hadn’t previously been caching around the area. There was a great turnout for the event, and folks stayed on longer than the half-hour advertised time.

Mistley Towers are a well-known local landmark – and looks rather ornate compared to the rest of the town. It was the view I had from my first cache find this morning.

There was also an Earthcache to be logged, so I took the requisite selfie as well as emailing the info to the CO.

After the event, I did another loop walk to pick up some more caches around Manningtree. The first was overlooking this view of the River Stour, which was rather nice in the afternoon light.

A great haul today, the numbers are now going up quickly again.
