Geocaching in Maidenhead
|Gate to nowhere|
Our first was a quick stop in a road I've never been down before (nice houses) and a little stroll back to the Gate to Nowhere. We spotted it as we went past and, as you can see from the picture, it really is a gate to nowhere. I wonder what was once here?
Took us a few minutes to locate the cache, which was done when I stuck my head through the middle part much to J's amusement.
Away we went to find Where the trains go by, by, by (8). The stroll over the bridge and down the roadway was nice and we were soon by the bridge. It was interesting to read about the two main spans and of course J had to try the echo out underneath, which certainly worked well.
A fisherman watched us as we strolled along but was fortunately distracted enough as we neared GZ. I made the grab as J does not like spiders/webs and we soon had the log signed. Afterwards we went and sat on the big steps nearby and watched some boats going up and down, and pondered on how much the houses opposite with their own moorings would be worth.
A few caches to finish our day and a lovely time with my teen. Well worth a little Sunday stroll.
