We had to take Isaac to Stafford for an interview at the Grammar School as part of his 11-Plus this morning, so took the chance to find the two new caches in Stafford. These have been our closest to home Not Found’s ever since they came out.
The first was a replacement cache in the Retirement Plan series, which we finished ages ago. This cache is themed around B&Q (it’s called “Orange Wednesday’s”) and B&Q moved to a new site in Stafford a while ago, so the cache had to be moved. We were supposed to go to two earlier caches in the series to get the co-ords for the new cache, but the cache owner’s kindly provided us with the details needed so we were saved the extra leg-work.
The second cache was a really easy cache and dash on Doxey Marshes, not too far from the M6. A lovely area for walking and absolutely tons of wildlife around the Nature Reserve. I spotted the hide as I walked up and went in for an instant find. Pity the cache was only on the edges of the Nature Reserve and not further in, but I guess permission issues dictated it’s placement.
All too soon we were on the road home and the day’s work that was awaiting me.
