I headed over to St. Lawrence Bay today to look for a series of hides along the sea wall. The afternoon started off sunny, although the wind was rather keen in places!

Being close to the Winter Solstice, the light didn’t last very long. The golden grasses were soon illuminated by orange light from the fading sun.
Golden Light On Grasses
The sunset happened at about the time I had just turned from the furthest point from the car, heading back. The clouds were rather good too.
Having had a DNF on a tricky D4 hide on the way out (think tupperware box under a pile of rocks), I finally bagged the tricky blighter by torchlight on the return leg. Hurrah!
Tricky Little Blighter
Another enjoyable Winter walk.

A set of five new “Cold” caches by
nathanjhunt have recently been published near Cold Norton, so today I thought I would head over there for a walk. First up was Cold Shoulder.
Next it was
Cold Feet. But luckily not for me, although the lane was muddy I had wellies and thick socks on, so the only cold feet was the name of the cache.
Cold Blood was the alarming name of the next hide, but nothing gruesome came to light, just more mud!
If I had had enough of caching, I would have gone
Cold Turkey. But I hadn’t and I did.
Last in the line, with the longest name, was
Cold Enough To Freeze The Balls Off A Brass Monkey. Thankfully no monkeys were harmed in the finding of this cache!

Just time for a couple of caches today, both hidden by
nathanjhunt. The first was the Village Sign in Stow Maries. It’s rather nice design reflects the area’s history and WWI Airfield nearby.

Then I moved on to Cold Norton to avenge a previous DNF at
Palepit Corner, a tricky little blighter but at least I didn’t get muggled before I’d even looked this time!
Walked: 0.7 miles
I’ve been appallingly lazy today. Not even walked a mile! Basically, because I’ve been sat on my bum all day conjuring up evil puzzles for my
Brains Not Brawn series. By this evening, I was going stir-crazy and needed to get out to find something – so it was a cash and dash from the car to find nathanjhunt’s Futurama-themed puzzle near Mundon. I had solved it a few weeks ago, but not really been in the area since.

My ankle is feeling a lot better but I decided on more drive-bys around Dengie this evening just to be on the safe side. I managed a good number of finds, including a couple of Village Signs:
VS North Fambridge
I made a bit of a cache and hash of
K6 Althorne Station, getting the calculations for the multi wrong TWICE! What a dunce. Got there in the end, though!
No Cache Here!
This cheeky find was one of a new series by
nathanjhunt called Roadside Revelations. Ha ha!
Ooh, Er, Missus!
