Sneaking in a few more




Sunday, January 19, 2014

The last time Kevin and I went looking for a few caches on a Sunday after our monthly meeting at the Dollshouse and Miniatures Club in Clayfield the heading of my post was: Sneaking in a few, hence today's title: Sneaking in a few more...  And we did.  We had started on the Melrose Meanderings series and had finished the nrs. 1, 2 and 3.  Today we parked the car in the park near the creek and started walking to finish the next three in the series.

Melrose Meanderings 4 Lewis Jackson

Must have taken its name from the two streets in between the cache was to be found: Lewis and Jackson Streets...

After a while you tend to get repeats.  This one, at the bridge, reminded us very much of the Sandy Bridge series and the cache was thus easily found.

Melrose Meanderings 6 The Pines :(

I think the name again had something to do with the surroundings: the missing pine trees!

This one was a bit tricky, because the co-ords seemed to be out a bit.  We walked first to the path above, but our search did not result in anything, so down the path we went.  Even then it wasn't an easy search with all the prickly seeds in the weeds that were growing amongst the plants.  I left Kevin to it... and in the end helped him sign the log. ;-)

Melrose Meanderings 5 Across the Line

We didn't quite walk the series in the correct order.  We never seem to do so...  On the way back we passed nr. 5 and had a funny occurrence.

The above picture is taken from the geocaching site as I again forgot to take a photo.  The young man is holding the 'container' for the cache.  It's a branch of a tree and the hint was: debris.  I could have known.  I had the branch in my hands, looked at it and thought: "No, this is not it."  I walked away, Kevin stepped in, picked up the branch and said: "Eureka", or something to that effect.  When I'd picked up the branch my hand covered the hole in which the actual cache container was stuck.  Kevin did actually see the little hole!  Well, at least we had found what we were looking for...  Another log to sign.

As we knew there was one more cache in the same park we decided to get that one and head home.  We walked up to GZ, had read the hint and in no time had the cache in hand.  We signed the log and walked back to pick up the car.  It had been a long hot day and we actually had enough.  Not a bad result (for us): 6 caches in one weekend.

This was nr. 122 for me.  It's looking good.
