Kenilworth Half 2013

Kenilworth Half 2013

We had a quick dash up to Kenilworth so that Kas could run the half marathon there. I toyed with the idea of running too but then Kas told me there’s no medal. No medal ? No run.

A bit of caching down by the river in Northampton, because, you know….

Weymouth

Weymouth

Our final day in Dorset, which was spent mainly in Weymouth. The girls did a bit of “beach work” while I went geocaching. Then we had posh fish and chips for tea and the girls got hair braids.

Not What We Planned

Not What We Planned

A perfect example that if you’re going to take a holiday in the UK you always need to plan what you are going to do on the days when the weather is rubbish.

Henges, white horses, geocaches and some rather nice looking bits of coastline.
What more could you want when you’re on holiday ?

Portland Bill

Portland Bill

The Isle of Portland is that little bit of Dorset that sticks right out into the English Channel.
There’s a lighthouse right at the very end, and there are some pretty impressive views back over to the mainland.

Down to Dorchester

Down to Dorchester

The start of our first proper holiday away for a couple of years. We were heading off to Dorset for most of a week. It proved to be much needed and very worthwhile.

A few days on the beautiful south coast of England. Our first proper holiday for a c ouple of years, and it was most welcome.

Kimbolton & Shelton

I’d been thinking about going caching on this day for quite a while, but had no time to plan anything. Thankfully, Wavvy came up with a cunning plan that I was happy to tag along with.

Little Staughton Sortie

A quick dash around north Bedfordshire and west Cambridgeshire with BingBongLong and Ami. I needed a “matrix” day and Ami was aiming to get past 500 finds.

The problem with point-to-point caching routes is that you need logistical support. It’s a good job I have an obliging wife.

Dunstable Dash

Dunstable Dash

Hmm ! The day on which I planned to kill off a day in quite a long series of “matrix” days, but on which I realised that I should actually have gone out caching the previous day too. Ho hum !
