This was only suppose to be a half hour play along the river, but it actually turned into a two and three quarter hour geocaching adventure. Not once did either of them moan they were bored, tired or fed up.
We started off up at the monument as there is suppose to be one near there, but we could not find the style they were on about that is the starting point so after fifteen mins of wandering back and forth up and down we gave up.
|playing at the river|
|Fifi found the first one|
|Bob had been looking as well but only found stinging nettles|
|Fifi takes the contents out|
|and we signed the log|
|you can see Bob in the background, he just been stung|
|and we put it back|
We carried on along the path, knew we were in the correct area but could not
find the second one, so we carried on.
|they were both taking photographs along the way.|
We carried on as far as the fishermans path goes, as the third one was at the very end.
We found this one without too much trouble and we et Bob open it and take the contents out.
|We found Oswalds end.|
|Bob took the lid off|
|took the contents out|
|and looked at the toys|
|we signed the log|
|and put this one back as well.|
As we had to come back the path we went along we decided to have another look for the one in the middle. We eventually found it, inside the waterfa bit. Was a bit wet and sippy for the children so I risked life and limb.....ok getting my feet wet, and we found this one as well.
|inside the waterfall|
|interesting contents in this one|
|with an even more interesting lid|
again we popped it back.
|and marched on our merry way.|
|lots of trees had red dots on them, no idea why|
|we went back over the wall|
They enjoyed it enough they want to go back, so next time we will take a few treasures so they can swap but plan it before hand and print off the clues and instructions for ach one, save me having to flip back and forth between programmes on the phone.
