10 Finds on the 10th

I was debating whether to do some work in the front garden or take Lottie geocaching.  Lottie preferred geocaching, and as Scott said he’d come too we headed south for a combination of some short but lovely walks as well as a few drive-bys.  I even found a former DNF!  I haven’t uploaded many photos to Flickr yet; I’ve included just a few after our logs.  More will be uploaded when I’m on a faster internet connection.

12:22 Found: First cache of the day as the sounds Lottie was making in the back seat made it obvious that a cache with some walking and sniffing along the way would be popular. I loved the track – everything seemed so green, the air smelt amazing (I think in part scented by the falling poplar leaves?). There were so many exotic plants along the track – wild roses, squillions of blackberries, cattail, even water lilies in a pond. Lottie enjoyed the opportunities to sniff plus viewing some woolly clients (?) of Mr red tag.As we approached GZ we went over the lovely little bridge, then through the Field of Buzzies. Lottie of course was in dog heaven; any opportunity to create mess where once there was clean and buzzy-free hair is held in high regard. Buzzies aplenty!Thank you for the cache and for showing us this track. It’s beautiful in the autumn!

12:59 Found: This track was a lovely little surprise! Before finding the cache I found a pen so was worried about the cache’s health. But the pen must have dropped out of the pocket of some muggle as when the cache was found it was obviously too big to have ever been inside! I signed the log, then sat for a minute to check out the lovely views.Thank you for the cache.

13:29 Found: Part of me didn’t want to seek this again 1) as last time I was here was with SG-3 and it didn’t seem fair to possibly find it without him (I don’t know why – I’m silly) and 2) because I think I swore I’d never try to find it again after the frustration of last time. We looked and looked. I got tired of Lottie pulling me all over the place, so I eventually tied her to something at GZ. She kept whingeing, we kept hunting. Eventually I saw it. Just there. Where I’d checked a bazillion times. I think Lottie was actually making noise because she could see it and was laughing at us!Once Was A DNF; Now Is A Found.

13:42 Found: Lovely views from here! Leaving Lottie in the cacheMobile might not have been the best thing to do as she certainly made enough noise to attract attention! However the town seemed eerily quiet with no one stirring.Thank you for the cache.

14:06 Found: I’m really glad there is such a good sign at the start of the track as I would not have seen it otherwise. It doesn’t look like much of a track at all, which I think is nice as it means it is a hidden little spot. Lottie sys track is a treat for the nose; she stopped many times on the way in to sniff. I was looking near where I got GZ, but Scott noticed something a bit out of place for the area. Somehow I thought we should have a look there, and what do you know – a cache! Then Lottie found the Dog Cache: a swimming hole! I don’t know if she liked the water more or all the native animal smells along the shore. We let her have a paddle / sniff, then headed back to the car. One of the owners of a driveway to the side of the track was making repairs and was quite friendly.Thank you for the cache and for treating us to this spot!

15:06 Found: WOW! Kingston has changed so much in the past couple years, but here is something that obviously has not changed that I knew nothing about. The scariest thing about the cache was its neighbours’ choice of music. ;-)Thank you for the cache!

YOU ARE GREAT !

15:13 Found: GR8! Somehow I was expecting something else, so while I was looking for my preconceived idea of what the cache would be Scott stood back and found it. I signed the last spot of the bottom.Thank you for the cache; too back I wasn’t there at the right time to say hello!

Lottie was SO excited just to get to the parking area for the dog beach. Then we I released her and let her run free the joy in her bounce, the silliness in her fact – she was intoxicated! So we let her run off a bit of silliness before heading for the track. Somehow I assumed this cache would be much further along the track than it actually is, so I was very surprised by the distance my GPSr was telling me when I turned it on as I started hoofing it up! Soon I took had join the club of Those With Camo On Our Paws. ;-)Thank you for the cache – Lottie says that despite you being a cat this was her bestest fun cache of the day!

16:26 Found: Talentless, utterly talentless. I always wanted one of these when I was a child, so I blame not even being able to successfully create a paw print on my underprivileged background. More toys is obviously betterer. I left my pathetic attempts behind to amuse the next finder.Thank you for the cache!

We parked at River Crossing to get to this one as we were headed home. As we came out from the tunnel under the bridge, I thought a muggle was parking near GZ. Luckily he was in a different area, so we could hunt uninterrupted. I found the log and signed – more muggles walking past. Tucked the cache back where it was hidden and started to walk away – another muggle drove in and parked as close as you possibly could to the cache. Love our timing today!Thank you for the cache!!

Sorry; you’ll probably just see ‘internal server error’; still don’t have my google maps sorted out.  Just in case it works though. . .

    Nice photos as always, and they’re not looking too drought-like. I see green. 🙂

    I thought something was missing from the log for “Once Was A Highway” though: was it a nice, clever hide?

    In this area, if the log doesn’t say, it might because the finder just neglects to mention it, which happens often… But it could also mean that they’re being polite, by not saying that it was a painful needle-in-a-haystack or whatever.
