Essex 100 – Loop 5

Trad: 40 Puzzle: 4
Walked: 12 miles

I had a day off caching yesterday, as I had to go to London for work. But today I went out for a great 44-cache stroll around Mr Crow‘s Essex 100 – Loop 5 between Tollsebury, Salcott and Tolleshunt D’Arcy. Neither myself nor Kitty had previously done this section of the extended series, and Crow said it needed a maintenance walk, so we agreed to wander round and replace any missing pots where necessary. In the end it was a splendid day out.

For reasons I never really understood, Kitty had kidnapped Mr Crow’s Raccoon and was threatening to post it back to him. We just couldn’t fit the damned thing through the slot!

This penguin was a rather more modest critter found lurking in one of the pots.

We ended our walk just as some glorious light was highlighting the fields, with moody sky behind. We were glad to get back to the car!
