Sea Wall Trek

As yesterday was my wedding anniversary, geocaching was not on the agenda. However as we visited the Wilkin's Tea Rooms in Writtle for the first time, I got a pass to go to Writtle playing fields to have another go at the Flagging puzzle cache. This one has a habit of going missing and as it had recently been replaced, I thought it prudent to have a look as we were only "just down the road!" Alas it was another DNF for me but I know from an e-mail chat with the CO that I was looking in the right place.

This morning, I was off to Burnham-on-Crouch to walk the sea-wall to do another of the "A view of" series set by NathanJHunt. Before I started though, I had a quick look for River Crouch Sea Wall #2 which had eluded many others and myself before. This time I spotted a subtle unseen hint and made a quick find, hoorah!!

Then I was off in the other direction to the find the "A view over Wallasea Island" series. Probably a four mile walk and I found all five caches, some easier and one, a pig to spot but I got it on the way back. As I was finishing the walk, I saw the crane in action lifting a small cabin cruiser over the sea wall for its winter maintenance.

I had time to work out the coords for a CM multi which look good for another visit to town.
