Rowney Green & Bordesley

The last couple of weekends we've been spending time doing the things we used to do before caching took over our lives .  So we decided to take a day off work today to get some caching done and we certainly picked the right day as the sun was already shining when we set off at 9.30.  A couple of new series had come up just north of Redditch so that was where we headed off to.

Rowney Green Loop

16 caches on a 3.4 mile circular walk

A very pleasant walk in the countryside around Rowney Green along good footpaths, some that we'd walked before and some new ones.  Completed the walk in 1 hour and 20 mins.

We were about to head over to Bordesley for our second series of the day when we noticed we were not far from Special-Ops - Delta.  Intrigued by the cool name we decided to see what it was all about.  A very clever cache which we can't say too much about as it would definitely spoil the surprise for other cachers.  It reminded us of some caches that we did in the early days of caching, excellent narrative on the cache page and great final location.  Looking forward to completing the rest of the series very soon.

Bordesley Park Loop

18 caches on a 4.5 mile circular walk

Parked on the verge next to Bordesley Park Loop #1 and off we went.  We were glad we'd left our dogs at home today as there were quite a number of dog proof stiles. (although they weren't too impressed when we went off with walking boots and caching bag without them ).

All caches were easy to find with good co-ords and hints.  Once again a very pleasant walk which we completed in just under 2½ hours.

Decided to make the most of such a beautiful day and do a spot of evening caching too.  It's great now the lighter evenings are here at last.  We headed over to Feckenham after tea with the dogs and found five caches starting at Wylde Moor, a lovely evening walk in very peaceful countryside.
