It was another crisp Autumnal day, but the sun was out so Alistair and I decided to have a walk to find some caches around Gosfield. We settled on the Greek Myths series by itandat, giving us a nice circular route.
Of course, no caching expedition is complete without at Church Micro – so we stopped off for CM370 in Gosfield before starting the main walk.
Part of the route took us past some of the holes of the local Golf club. Look out for low-flying balls!
Some of the signs were a bit the worse for wear, but we spotted them all in the end.
There were loads of lovely colours in the trees, and plenty of golden light to show it off at its best.
As the afternoon progressed, our shadows got longer and longer. I’ve never had such long legs!
Even towards the end of the day, there was still pockets of frost on the ground in the shadows. Some places hadn’t seen the sun all day.
As the last of the daylight was fading, we made the last of our finds – the bonus for the series, and then headed back to the car and home for tea and cake.
I headed to Gosfield today to find some caches in the area, it’s not somewhere I find myself very often. My first target was the Village SIgn trad – and I got a bonus two for the price of one on film pots here!
Next I went searching for a trio of trads in the little woodland to the east of the village. I found some great hides and some natural sights too – including the first spot of a decent Fly agaric specimen this season.
Next I relocated to the footpath north of Great Spanseys Wood to find another trio of trads. Two were in the Something Fishy series – and I certainly found something here, although it wasn’t fishy!
The next was supposed to be a Mighty Oak, but all I found was a small plastic tree! Well, it was inside the cache, so I guess that’s OK.
Broak’s Wood was next on my agenda. The hides were a bit tricky, and some of the undergrowth was a bit hard going. I was amused to stumble across this “seat” dedicated to Vera along the way!
Autumn is really taking hold now, with turning leaves and dampness in the air, but it’s a very photogenic time of year, so I’m not complaining.
