There were too Essex Mega events to visit today, first off was the Caching & Nature walk in Hatfield Forest. Kids were taught to make fire (responsibly!) with the Rangers. I met Marley the Geodog – just about the sweetest-natured pooch you could hope to find.

I had the opportunity to find a few caches in the forest. There were plenty of other folks finding tupperware too!

The evening saw the Stargazing Picnic back at Barleylands. Alistair arrived from Newcastle in time for the interesting talk from cacher and astronomy buff, Loony Londo. Sadly the clouds closed in and it was too overcast to do any stargazing.

However, the clouds didn’t stop us being visited by Interstellar beings! This was at GZ of a great puzzle cache released that evening.
