Geocaching around Sunningdale

We dug out our wellies (well, my wellies as hubby doesn't have any) and headed off to do our first geocaching of the year.  In fact, it's almost the first lot of caching in a year!  We really need to sort that out.

Parked up in one of the Common car parks and headed off. I'd looked at a map beforehand and it seemed to show a crossing over the railway line near the Sunningdale bridge.  Nice walk down that way but no crossing. What does that dotted line mean then?

Walked along the road to get to the first of the caches in the woods.  Nice houses down here.  Took a while to find our first cache - Branching out -  as GPS jumping around but we got there in the end.  Think the clue needs a serious update (head height if you're a vole!).


Off to the next one along the path through the woods.  Came out at the back of Wentworth Gold Club. Next one - Slow going - took a bit of hunting and hubby made the spot in the end.  Nice one of these.


Headed past the golf course (really loud noise like a giant hairdryer by the green) to the next one - Birch tree.  Nice spot by hubby again whilst I tried to find something less obvious! ;)  Trouble is, I think I may have pushed this a bit too far in so I hope someone can get it out again (sincere apologies to cache owner if they can't).


Walk down past what looked like the golf club junk yard (they really need to sort that out as it looks awful!) and to the next one - Joining the ivy league.  Had to wait for some chaps in a little golf style car to go past first whilst we tried to work out what ICT meant if not a computer somewhere here.  Finally got it - DOH!  Pleased it didn't take long to find as not one of my favourite hiding places.


Headed off to our final one - Like falling off a log. GPS all over the place again so we were wandering from one side of the path to another.  Lots of suspects and despite turning things over and peering at the sides of many logs, nothing appeared.  After a good 20 minute search we gave up and had a nice walk back to the car.

Feel like we've blown the lack of caching cobwebs away now so looking forward to going out next time with the girls.
