February – part 1


February was a month for Church Micros.  It wasn’t planned but most of the caches I found were church micros.

The month began with a visit to the village of West Pennard, 3 caches in total around the village.  The first was West Pennard Wander, I took Tara into a field on my own to find this one as my sister would not walk through the mud!  We found the cache easily and there were good views towards Glastonbury Tor.

The next cache was W.M #9 We shall remember them – West Pennard, I didn’t realise there was a War Memorial series I will have to watch out for more of them.  The cache was easily found close by.

The church was at the top of the hill, an interesting walk looking at some lovely houses on the way.  We had no problems finding the cache. This was my 250th cache.

A highlight of the month was a First to Find, I am not one that dashes out the door when a new cache is published and I didn’t intend to go for this one.  Twice a year I attend a greyhound meet with my greyhound (they love to meet other greyhounds as most of them are brought up together as a group and of course they are around lots of other greyhounds when racing), anyway on the way I decided to look for the new cache that had been published a few days before. Imagine my surprise to find a blank log!  So I now have a total of 3 FTFs.

Several other people found the cache later in the day so it was lucky I looked for it on the way and not on the way back.

Our next trip was to Kilmerston and the surrounding area.  A variety of caches, the highlight for me was Jack and Jill Hill.  This is the hill that inspired the nursery rhyme ‘Jack and Jill went up the Hill’, the well at the top of the hill is in the school grounds and the hill is steep!

The cache for Jack and Jill Hill was one of the best I have come across so far:
