Finishing my morning walk where, perhaps, I should have started it with the first cache in this enjoyable series. Took a while for a good GPSr fix and I walked up and down the path a few times before spotting the container. But then – disaster – this replaced cache has a brand new log book… and I’ve
dropped my caching pencil somewhere between the last cache and this one. Unable to sign log, but hopefully attached picture showing CO’s replacement message will suffice.
TFTC, and the series in general. So glad to be able to take this lovely walk from Fairlawns this year. FP
awarded here for the series in general.

Distracted by the cattle eating their breakfast and the increasingly beautiful sunrise, almost forgot to look for this cache. Read the hint but still didn’t have a clue until I spotted
something out-of-place in a field. Sure enough, it was the cache. Nice hide! TFTC.
This expedition also sees me using StreetComplete to update OpenStreetMap metadata. Here, I got to correct the “stile” to a “kissing gate”. Fun!

Sunrise taking off in earnest now with reds and pinks on the horizon, and my spine – unhappy for sleeping in an unfamiliar bed last night – is enjoying getting a stretch from the walk,
too. Stared right at this cache for a moment thinking “well that’s where I would hide it, but would the CO” before reaching to check and,
yup, putting my hand right on it. Now on through the cattle field!

I can see why the previous log moved this cache; pleased to see you be a good hiding place on the other side. Also pleased this wasn’t another nano! Light’s grown enough now to add a
smiley selfie from the path. Greetings from Oxfordshire, and TFTC!

Got carried away with my walk and briefly overshot this one: realised as I reached the quarry road. Turned back and found the cache in the third place I looked. Said hi to a rabbit and
the horses, up and foraging for their breakfast in the early light, before moving on.

This morning’s caching expedition just has it in for my back, I fear, with this one no exception. Nonetheless, a QEF in the first place I looked. TFTC!

A nonprofit I volunteer with has, years ago, held our Christmas bash at the nearby Fairlawns Hotel. We haven’t been in several years and –
even though we missed Christmas itself by a full month! – decided to return here this year.
I’m often an early riser, especially when away from home, and enjoy making the most of the first light with a walk. Last time I was here there wasn’t a geocache in sight, so imagine my
delight to find that now there’s one right on the doorstep! Armed with a torch to fight off the renaming pre-dawn darkness, I braved the cold and came out to explore.
Found the obvious hiding spot quickly, but my sore back (Fairlawns’ mattress was somewhat softer than I enjoy!) made retrieval challenging! Still, a success once I was on my hands and
knees! TFTC, and Merry Christmas I guess!
