Geocache Description:


I was happy to achieve my 950th cache with one in remembrance of ogremlin.   On one occasion I was even able to give him some advice about solving a local cache!    It started me thinking about how to complete my series for those who were struggling with an alphanumeric  challenge of cache names.   We recently had a sermon at church based on “If only” during which we were exhorted to do it now before it’s too late!
I looked at my statistics for the 950 and realised that of the top five in the league of names-of-setters-of-caches-found I had three locals and another whom I’d met.
League Table
Position   Name           Caches I’ve found
1st             Chuffbert                  30+
2nd           Team-SK                  30+
3rd            airhorns                    20+
4th            LEGEND                   20+
5th           Stormydown              20+
What better way to celebrate this than to dedicate a cache to each of them?   I intend these caches to be reasonably easy to find despite the fact that each of the above has from time to time given me headaches of considerable proportions.

This group is along a walk about 1 mile long, which means retracing your steps or coming back through the town   Most (but not all in sequence) is just about passable in a wheelchair but grabbing the caches would need assistance.   As ever the chances of being observed are high.  
Part of the walk is along the edge of a quay.  Please be very careful especially if children are with you.
It would NOT be sensible to go along here in the dark.


When all the land between here and the road was railway lines there were two bridges.   One at the end of Victoria Street and one at the end of Adelaide Street.   I well remember as a child running across them especially if a steam train were leaving the "big station".   Now there is this wonderful blue bridge.   With the closing of the ro-ro facility I wonder if it will be left here?   I certainly hope so as it gives a vantage point from which to look all around.   It would also be a marvellous place for Stormydown, in her diva persona to descend whilst belting out one of those songs which strike right into your heart! How does she manage to walk down a flight of steps without looking at her feet?
