After our success in Buckland we drove to Barkway to complete a multi-cache (based on a milestone) we had failed to find previously. This time it was no issue, ‘The Man’ did the Maths and, after a short walk, we found it virtually straight away.

After another short drive, we were at The Barkway Pathway cache – again we found it no problem.

We the headed on to do the ‘Joint Dashes Caches’, which were spaced out along a road, but with nowhere to leave the car, we had to drive along and just pull over next the cache location.

One of our stops was near a (dis-used?) Ministry of a Defence (air) base which had a huge mast nearby and scary signage. Cache located, we headed onwards.

There were stunning views in this location and the sun was now fully out, casting shadows.

We found some stunning wildflowers round this area.

We then headed to Reed to complete a couple of caches we’d been unable to find last time we were there due to a cricket match and here we meet this gorgeous, friendly cat.

Again we found all the caches we searched, which explains why ‘The Man’ looks so happy.

We parked the car and visited the historical site of the Celtic Village of Icenorum – finding many insects like the thick legged flower beetle…

and demoiselle dragonflies …

We then headed across the main road to the farm based caches.

The whole area was well signposted with information about the flora and fauna along the route.

‘The Man’ had fun finding the caches.

We also found a wild wasps nest in a hollow tree,

…and an interesting spotted longhorn beetle,

plus we saw many varieties of bee,

We finished off the day with a cream tea in a local church. Delicious!

And The Man and I are agreed that this is definitely the best way to finish a day’s geocaching.

We only needed a few caches to complete the Hidden Creatures final souvenir (and I only needed two to get my 2,000th cache, so we headed off to do a fairly local circuit. We parked close to the first cache where I soon spotted this cute little critter.

We then did the ‘fine pair’ cache and headed through the churchyard to do the church micro. There were some very cool grotesques on the church.

After bagging the church micro we headed off to complete the walk. The day was again boiling hot with butterflies, moths and insects galore.

After walking through a field of growing peas,

We headed into a cool and secluded wooded area where people had been constructing shelters made from fallen branches.

We found all the caches in the woods included this baldly spelled log book.

All the caches were in very good condition,

And we saw some cool insects,

All in all this was a great little circuit and I am the proud holder of both my 2,000 cache and The World Turtle Hidden creatures souvenir.
