Southend Soujorn - 10th February

I had a couple of hours so to start with, I drove down to smuggling country to pick up the new cache at Paglesham Church. It was a quick find in the ivy and then back up the road to check out the post box outside The Old Post Office. 

I then drove back towards civilisation to find the #VS in Wakering. It was a very quick find, however, I was reminded of the nearby PUBS series, which was summarily archived without warning last year. It would have been a nice to have the opportunity to adopt some of the caches that were archived nearer home!

Moving on, I picked up a ST near Rochford Station and then another #VS at Sutton and Shopland, a hamlet near Southend. Deciding to drive home down the A127, it seemed silly not to have yet another go at Off Your Trolley at the Westcliff Tesco. This has long eluded me but the hint "plastic explosive" suddenly made sense C4, and the cache was soon in hand.

It's been a quiet month so far but 5 trads today help towards the total.
