On A Boat - Will It Get To Botany Bay? - January 28th

I’ve been holding an event on the last Sunday of the month for over a year now and I’m always looking for quirky venues. I’d noted this venue on a scan of Essex cafes on the internet. This one ticked all the boxes, it was on an old Thames sailing barge, it had great reports and also fitted in with one more relevant fact.

In Geocaching terms, today was Australia Day. Attendance at an event today would earn an official souvenir.😀 There was a fantastic turnout with cachers coming from Colchester, Chelmsford, Panfield, South Benfleet and even two Spanish cachers! Everyone loved the venue and no-one had been there before even locals so I was well pleased. The sausage buffers went down well and everyone was happy. The trouble is that I have to always find a venue to top the last one.

This would be the last chance for Infinson, nathanjhunt and me to discuss last minute plans for our day trip to Dublin next Thursday. It didn’t seem that anything had been left to chance so time to go.

After the event, I walked down to the above end of the quay to get the answers to claim the new Virtual -MINE. Thankfully, the CO, one of the attendees at the event liked them. Then it was up to the High Street to find the answers to solve the CM Maldon - St Peter Multi. There were no problems here and I soon had the cache in hand.👍🏻
