Giving Geocaching Another Go

Over February half term we decided to give Geocaching another go.  Previously we have attempted to find 2 Geocaches and failed to find either.  However, we weren't put off and decided to give it anther go but this type we had a Geocache App to help us.

This time we decided to try and find some Geocaches along the Staffordshire Canal starting from Wolverly.  Off down the tow path we went taking in the countryside views:

Standing on the bridge over the River Stour which runs along side the canal trying to get a better view of the ducks on the River. Having a 10 minute conversation with The Girl that although I don't have my glasses on, they are not ducklings she can see as it is too early! 

Trying to avoid all the mud after all the recent rain.

Reaching the lock and trying to find the Geocache.

Giving up as we can see where the Geocache is but the ground is water logged and we can't get to it.  Playing fair, I can't show you where it was hidden.  We could see it but there was too much mud and was close to the side of the canal.  The last thing I wanted was them slipping in the mud and ending up in the canal so we didn't actually leave a message.

Posing for photos:

Getting tired now and falling behind.

And then we were back to where we started.

Tired and a little chilly we go inside for a warm and a rest.

And order a little refreshments.

Sunday lunch finished and someone else does the washing up!

A fun family day out with a semi successful ending.

Looks like fun! I've always wanted to try geocaching but have never done it.

How frustrating that you couldn't reach it! Love geocaching - at least those puddings were worth the effort! xx
