This cache has been archived.

Tim & June: We have recently checked the area and the undergrowth has been completely cleared where this cache was hidden, as it was a puzzle cache and the whole story/clues would have to be changed we have decided to archive the cache.

Hopefully we will be able to place another one close to this location at some stage in the future.

Geocache Description:

The above coordinates are NOT for the cache, just a nearby location.

 

“I don’t understand” said Watson as he took a seat next to old friend Holmes. “We did everything they asked and left the ransom where they told us but they still have not returned Bash to his keepers”.

“Penguins cannot survive long without the proper conditions and I fear for Bash’s safety. I checked again five minutes ago and found that a strange note had been delivered to the zoo. I don’t know what to think, it looks more like a list of some kind.”

“Let me see” said Holmes,


Aha! As I suspected, a well-educated individual with an eye for detail, beautifully hand written in straight lines, every detail is perfect with all the t’s crossed, the i’s dotted and on fine parchment too. But notice that there are no capital letters Watson. He has told us everything we need know.

I can tell you exactly where the Penguin has been left and as usual, it’s elementary my dear Watson
