A Morning in Long Compton

Arranged to meet unowho67, [Monki], Blue Nora and Lime Candy at the village Hall in Long Compton to do the new series 'A Wander around Long Compton', 15 caches on a 4 mile circular walk.

St Peter and St Paul Church, Long Compton
Met up at the village hall in Long Compton at 9am and set off soon after.  All caches were easy to find and were a variety of sizes and hides.  A frosty start but we all soon warmed up as we got going.  A great morning to be out caching, the sun even came out briefly which was nice.

Wandering around Long Compton
We didn't have Poppy and Whisper with us today but the walk would've been ideal for them and is completely dog-friendly.  After reading some of the logs we were expecting a lot more mud but it wasn't too bad at all, only the final stretch through the ploughed field was really muddy.  All too soon we were back at the car, completing the walk in 2 hours and 20 mins.  Enjoyed a nice chat over snacks and coffee then we went our separate ways.

We headed off to Dark Lane in the hope of a FTF, we've found a cache every month for 30 consecutive months so are quite keen to keep up finding at least one FTF a month.... anyway it was not to be we were beaten to it by about an hour.  Never mind, we still have a bit of time before the end of January to find one.
