We had a fabulous day out caching along the canal between Bromsgrove and Droitwich on Saturday.
The weather forecast was good but the day started out with lots of fog patches. This made driving down the M6 / M5 interesting to say the least but we got there in one piece. We set off on our bikes, tackling the caches to the south ofwhere we parked first.
Lots of mist along the canal meant not many muggles out – all the better for finding caches! The only one we struggled on was an offset multi at one of the locks. We knew the hide was sneaky but we could not spot it and gave up after a short search – too much ivy and hawthorn for my liking.
After lunch at some handy canal-side picnic tables we carried on northwards to finish off the WBC series before driving round to do a nearby Puzzle cache and then on to the PH series.
As we started down the first PF we spotted two cachers at GZ – it turned out to be Des and Bren (snerdbe). We had a chat and realised we were all going on to the same caches so we joined forces.
Had fun with some more of the hides, including one on the end of a ‘fishing line’ (see photo above). Then it was on to the bonus cache, which bizarrely turned out to be two seperate micros, hidden inches from each other.
All in all a fabulous day out – great weather, nice locations, interesting and varied hides.
