On Friday we had a day trip to Weston-Super-Mare. Of course I researched some geocaches before we went. There were four altogether but in the end we only managed to look for two.

The first was a really easy one. We'd decided to stop for a coffee and to let the geokids play on the beach. I set up the GPS and there was the first geocache just 16ft away, across the road. I sent Graham over to retrieve it and he bough it back for us to rummage through. I was most disappointed that the travel bug was missing, it was a voodoo doll and I'd really wanted to swap that. Still, I decided it was a good place for our travel bug, Pirate Bob, to start his journey so he got left behind.

Later in the day we visited a part of Weston I'd not been to before in search of another cache. It was a lovely garden park that had been built on the land of the former pavilion. The GPS said we were close but we searched and searched and just couldn't find it. We were a little disappointed but we'd had a lovely day and couldn't feeling pleased that we'd actually ended up in this place.

We didn't bother with the other two. Once would not load on the GPS at all, and the other was a nano in an area we didn't go and didn't think it was worth the diversion. I do wish I'd researched the service stations though because there was one at the station we'd stopped at on the way home.
