Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar for a two day trip to the Bournemouth area. The weather was good throughout, though chillier as the year wanes, particularly early and late. The primary motivation was ticking the 78th and 79th squares in my Multi T/D grid (both achieved) but there were many other good caches to be had while we were in the area; two YOSMs, many challenge caches, many Church Micros and a smattering of others. We cached until dark and beyond both days and were shattered at the end of it. Was it worth it? Of course!!
A stop off on the way down just North of Southampton for a handful of caches then on to Sandbanks and the ferry for Brownsea Island. Back on the mainland we immediately took the car ferry to Shell Bay and circled back to Bournemouth picking up caches as we went. Then, after a bite to eat, a pair of night caches to fill up the evening. Disappointingly, three irksome DNFs today but also lots of good finds.
Project GC mentions purple_pineapple, Merstham Mafia, C-Kit, pigfumbler and L&Mo but I'd like to claim this for Flatcoat Walker. Of her total 639 caches I have found 608, the last (Ashurst to Spithandle Lane #12B) on 2nd June 2016. My favourite was Flatcoat Walker Hide # 500, found on 27th July 2011. Shame it needed to be archived.
As for the hide itself, short walk, quick find.
