Copford Constitutional

Trad: 26 Puzze: 2
Walked: 11.2 miles

I went for a huge walk today, around the footpaths of Copford and Heckfordbridge, covering a little over 11 miles in total. The 28 finds for today mean I’ve done another day qualifying for a Challenge cache too.

There was a great variety of hides along the route – not one from a specific series, but I connected a few footpaths to make up a bigger circular walk.

Unfortunately, Postman Pat’s puzzle was rather soggy when I arrived at GZ, but I just about managed to sign the book.

Moley was happily burrowing at the base of a tree, and soon came out to say hello when I called.

There was a good view across the gravel pit workings just north of Colchester Zoo. There were certain aromas on the air around here too!

The light was lovely as I walked around the tracks, with some drama in the sky as well.

Quite a few of the boxes were a decent size with plenty of swag inside, and I picked up a couple of trackables to move along soon. All in all, a tiring but enjoyable day out.
