We were supposed to be going to Yarmouth for my birthday but had to cancel for one reason and another. Saturday came and we were just beginning to plan what to do for my birthday instead. Then the phone rang and someone wanted to book us in for a remap on their Smart car down in Bristol.
We decided to pack the van up and go down on the Saturday evening and then do the car on Sunday. We planned to park up somewhere in Bristol for the night. However as ever, our plans are always pretty fluid. We ended up stopping off for some chips at a nice chippy we know in Tewkesbury. Then plans changed again and we parked up at the car park just near Tewkesbury Abbey. We stayed there overnight and then in the morning headed off to complete the journey. As we arrived earlier than expected we decided to do a bit of caching. The first cache wasn't anything that special but gave me a chance to offload some trackables that I had had for far too long. The cache was called One Too Many? http://coord.info/GC1XFE2 and was at the site of an old home for innebriates.
Still having a bit of time left we found a virtual cache to do. Blaise Hamlet http://coord.info/GCF143 is an old established virtual and has been up and running since 2003. This one soon earned a favourite point. I can't really describe the place, I don't know whether we entered a fairy tale village or something from the hobbit. The pictures below really don't do it justice and all I can say is that if you are ever in the Bristol area, do go and visit this one.
That's it then, a bit of caching that wasn't planned but turned out to be good fun.
I am now 4 off my 700th, wonder if I will have it by the time I add to the blog next week?
