Trad: 3 Multi: 5 Letterbox: 2 Earth: 1 Virtual: 3 Whereigo: 1
Walked: 11.9 miles
I was going to stay with muggle friends near Shoreham this evening, but having spent overnight in Chichester, that meant I had all day to have a potter around West Sussex, looking for several different tasty cache types.
My first was a Virtual inside the famous Goodwood Aerodrome (used for flying and racing) – at the statue of an iconic WWII pilot.
The next stop was Worthing, for a lovely walk around the town following a Whereigo:
Nearby were a couple of Letterbox hides which were easy finds after a nice little walk. I wasn’t so sure about the dude guarding this one!
The final location of the day was Shoreham-by-Sea, where I picked up another Virtual at the old lighthouse, and took a longer walk for some other types of cache.
Of course, there were a few Church Micro multis in the mix!
Then I relocated to Shoreham Beach to complete the Earthcache on the shingle. It wasn’t very cold but it was extremely windy out there!
Finally, I had a rest on a bench and found its secret hiding underneath. Ella was the view.
Originally, my reason for being in Shoreham this evening was to attend a Boat Only event, to christen my newly-acquired inflatable kayak, Boaty McBoat Face. But as the event time drew nearer (7:30pm) the weather got worse – threatening with rain and very cold and windy. I scouted the location and decided that, as a novice, I wasn’t really up to launching at any of the given points, so decided to bow out gracefully and go to meet my muggle friends a bit earlier. They were delighted to see me, and I was delighted to get warm again!
