Geocaching

I've discovered this recently - it's sort of like treasure hunting.  People hide caches, and post their locations on a web site.  You have to find the cache, and usually you write your name and date in the log provided.

I took my niece out for a geocaching session earlier this week - we found three caches near to us in about 1 1/2 hours.  It was fun reading the clues, and following the directions on the tablet app to get to the required location.

Some of the hints require a bit of interpretation - one was "take a seat and Vue the post" - the casche was under a fence post in the direction of the Vue cinema!!

Anyway, it's good fun, and adds an extra element to a walk, or having a look around when you're wanting something to do for a few minutes.
