Day #3140

Posted by Caz on Friday, 5th August 2016

Day #3140Title: Pontycyllte Aqueduct
Location: Pontycyllte, Wrexham
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I took my fold up geo-bike for a trip along the Llangollen canal today, finding lots of lovely geocaches. I started off in Chirk and cycled north then west towards Llangollen itself. En route, I had to cross the Pontycyllte Aqueduct, a magnificent feat of engineering which was completed in 1805. It’s Britain’s longest and highest aqueduct, and a Grade I listed building. I don’t mind heights, but some folks were clearly a bit phased having to walk along the path.

Location: Brentwood, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I took my little scooter to Brentwood today, to do some geocaching. It gets me around quicker than walking. My Little Quacker came along too, and wanted to be in the picture, so sat on the handlebars.

Day #3121Title: Fullbridge In Bloom
Location: Fullbridge, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was a nice day in Maldon this afternoon, I wandered down to Fullbridge to see the boats and collect a geocache. The fluffy clouds added some interest in the sky.

Day #3114Title: Punting With Shifty
Location: Grantchester, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: More boating today for Alistair and I. This time with a different group of friends punting on the Cam. Shifty The Mega Duck was very popular, being towed alongside. He liked getting his feet wet again.

Day #3113Title: Maiden Voyage
Location: Fotheringhay, Northamptonshire
Camera: GoPro Hero 4 Silver / GoProPole / GoPro App
Notes: Today Alistair and I went to a floating geocaching event, with caching friends Ian and Ryan. It was time for the maiden voyage of my new inflatable kayak, Boaty McBoatface. I figured if nobody else was going to call a boat that, I may as well. Anyway, we had a great time afloat, finding a good few caches and trying not to get wet. All good fun.

Day #3104Title: Glorious Goodwood
Location: Goodwood, Sussex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I ventured down to Sussex today to stay with friends for a few nights. On the way I stopped off at Goodwood to find a geocache. This is the entrance to the aerodrome, a very narrow tunnel under the runway. Breathe in!

Day #3097

Day #3097Title: Don’t Get Your Feet Wet
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I took this shot while I was on the way to work on the EU Referendum results programme this evening. This bit of road floods quite regularly after heavy rain, so it wasn’t much of a cut through today. I had to go via the main road instead. But writing this up with the hindsight of several months later (I’m horribly behind with blogging), the picture could be construed as an unintentional metaphor for the whole Brexit debâcle. Don’t get me started…
