It was a lovely sunny day in Bridge of Earn so we decided to look for another geocache near River Edge Lodges. Actually there are loads of them around here, and as i like to get out of the office for a daily constitutional, what better excuse did I need?
I decided to pressurise other half and child number 3 to come with me. We were looking for the Lost Souls geocache.
We had a very pleasant walk through Dunbarney Estate on the outskirts of Bridge of Earn. The Lost Souls cache was in such a peaceful resting place cough cough, not to give too many clues away. Actually this small sacred place used to be the Dunbarney Parish Cemetry. It’s full of very old gravestones with carvings that reveal the various trades of the people who are buried here.
In this picture, I think the excitement of finding a new cache is tangible! It took us 14 seconds to discover what was in the box. We took nothing and left nothing – mainly because we forgot to bring anything to put in the box. Actually, I just told a lie; we did take something. We found a hairy centipede in the box and we released him back into the wild.
Roll on our next geocaching adventure. where will it be? Watch this space – it could be Schiehallion or Moncreiffe Hill. We were in Rome recently and looked for the geocache on the Spanish Steps – but alas it had stepped away. We didn’t find it. But we consoled ourselves with a bottle of Frascati, so we weren’t too upset.
