Day #363

Posted by Caz on Sunday, 28th December 2008

Day #363Title: Croxton’s Mill
Location: Little Waltham
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: It was a sunny day, but bitterly cold for most of it. Nevertheless, Alistair and I set out for a day’s geocaching mission around Little Waltham and Broomfield. The Nature Reserve is a lovely place to walk and for the most part, the sun shone. By the time we had completed the caches here, the light was beginning to fade and it was freezing. But we then headed south to Galleywood to look for a special 500 Finds Geocoin in one of my cache hides, as it was Alistair’s 500th geocache. Can’t imagine how that got there. Not that he’s an addict, or anything ;-)

Day #362

Day #362Title: Plotting A Route
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The sun we were promised in the forecast never materialised today. A shame, but I was busy with various jobs at home. Tomorrow, my fellow geocaching addict friend Alistair is coming over, so I spent a little time this afternoon plotting some caches we can visit. Let’s hope the sun comes out for us!

Day #317

Day #317Title: Marina Reflections
Location: Springfield Lock
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I took the opportunity to nip out for a breath of fresh air while the sun was shining today. And find another geocache or two. Once again, geocaching has taken me to a spot which I didn’t even know existed, and it’s lovely. It’s along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, just downstream of the Essex Record Office, and is about the last bit of civilisation before you hit the more rural paths along the canal.

Day #307

Day #307Title: After Constable
Location: Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: A much more successful caching day today – I managed to find my 50th hide with Alistair’s assistance. This was taken on a short walk between two sites along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, and reminded me of a Constable painting. I haven’t done anything to it, it’s as it came out of the camera.
