This Sunday and Monday, my time is very limited and the weather is rubbish anyway so I don’t want to be out for too long.

I drove down to the church on the boundary of Southend Airport to have a look for the CM Eastwood ~ St Laurence. This was a cunning multi and for a moment, I thought that the coords had me within the airport area. I‘m sure that I heard a story about a local cacher straying through a gap in the fence to look for this cache, only to be greeted by the airport boys in blue, wondering what she was doing.๐Ÿค”

I wasn’t going to make that mistake, in fact, that tale made my search a little easier. This cache was clever, utilising an unusual host, well I’d never seen one like it before so it had to have a fave.๐Ÿ‘

The next day, I ventured out towards the old Orsett Cock, once a very vibrant boozer with a blues club on a Sunday night. Now it’s an Indian restaurant like so many old pubs in Essex. I had come out here to pick up the last one in a series that I had found in October. This was the bonus and also a Mystery cache, lovely jubbly.๐Ÿ˜€

I had the coords to the final stage already and once in the search area, I quickly found the quirky A1-to-8 “Bonus Bug” tucked away in its lair thanks to the subtle hint. So with regard to the Geostreaker Challenge, I had all the required icons and one more day to go. It’s lucky that I’m out caching all day tomorrow, isn’t it.๐Ÿ˜€
