Geocache Description:

The cache is not located at the above coordinates. There is plenty of off street parking available at the parking waypoint listed below.

There is nothing particularly “colonial” about the final location. It’s just convenient and a good quiet spot to bring the little ones (or furry ones) to play. It’s a short walk to The Solent as well. The area may be a bit muddy after rain, but there are plenty of berries to pick at the right time of year.

The cache is a small cylindrical camoflaged rubbermaid type container. It has room for very small trade items only.

A short list of questions, which you should rapidly assess, are related to “The Colonies.”
