Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

Path To The Cache Originally uploaded by travellingcharl. While out doing chores, I stopped to check on the Washing Machine geocache for Seizer, who's up in Queensland and can't check it himself. After passing about eight warning signs and three fences, this ...

Pelican

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Pelican Originally uploaded by travellingcharl. Took this photo while exploring Winnererremy Bay with Yewenyi. I came back and placed a geocache - Sparkle - not long afterwards. Geocachers love their amenities. When you're caching, you want views, toilets, drinking water and preferably ...

Boat On The Side Originally uploaded by travellingcharl. Taken at Mackerel Beach, in Pittwater, while walking to the 2108 geocache. This is the first time I've experimented with strange camera angles.

Myra

Myra Originally uploaded by travellingcharl. This is the ferry me, c.j.b., Yewenyi and Fi went to Mackerel Beach on, to check my 2108 geocache. I thought it would be easy, but the tide was coming in and it was difficult to get ...

Kamikaze Koala

5/13/2007 You found Hilltop (Traditional Cache) There was much complaining (not from me!) as we walked up the long flight of stairs leading to this cache. But the views from the top were well worth it. Mosquitoes swarmed like vampiring helicopters around GZ. They reduced c.j.b. and ...

Duke Paoa Kahanamoku

My 150th Geocache

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Big day of geocaching. Yewenyi was in Canberra, so it was just Chris and me. First we tried: Cops and Bushrangers. Unfortunately, it wasn't a success. We tried trail after trail, but only got to within 80m of the cache, with cliffs in the way. If there was a clear trail ...

Easter Show 2007

Sunday, April 8th, 2007

Went off to the Easter Show yesterday with Brian, Chris, Belinda and Fiona. I missed out last year, as I was in London at the time. Nothing much has changed at the Show, but it's one of those places you just have to visit, even if it's only once a ...

St James Park

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

Lovely Sunday. Walked around central London with James. Had lunch in China Town at Piccadilly, then walked past the Ritz to St James park. We had a quick stroll through the Ritz but didn't stop. They book up weeks ahead. Plus the place looked a bit tizzy. Tried a bit of ...

Persistent suitor

Saturday, June 3rd, 2006

Just got back from a frustrating session of geocaching. I had a pleasant 2.5km walk through East Ham, towards one of the Greenway geocaches. I got to within 4 metres of the caches and I was about to start searching the ivy bush mentioned in the geocache hint when: "Hi! What's ...

East Ham Nature Reserve

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

Just came back from a walk through the local area. I found 2 geocaches, one at the top of a hill, that looked like it might be an ancient burial mound of some sort, though now heavily developed. East Ham isn't a pretty place, it's residential and industrial, but it ...

Green Park

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Spent the morning applying for jobs and recruiters, sending a fax to my bank in Australia, then I took the Tube to Oxford Circus to prove I had a UK passport to PFJ. What did I see right next to PFJ? It's Post Office Tower! (Now the BT Tower.) Last time I ...

Hampstead Heath Continued

Saturday, April 15th, 2006

I can download my e-mail but not send, it appears. Has anyone received an e-mail from me? So, what was I saying before I was so rudely interrupted by Starbucks closing yesterday? Let's see, yesterday I had hot chocolate and a chocolate tart at a wonderful shop at Hampstead, Paul Maison ...

Hampstead Heath

Saturday, April 15th, 2006

Just had the most fabulous day. Went to Hampstead Heath by tube, as it was recommended in Lonely Planet London, and all the museums are closed because it's Good Friday and had the most sensational chocolate shop / geocaching / historical house hike of all time. I wish you guys ...

Writing

Tuesday, November 15th, 2005

I've got so much to catch up on. While I was on holiday, I did over 30 geocaches, wrote pages of my NaNoWriMo novel, finished uni by handing in my final assignment and doing a seminar. Now I'm back at work again. The holiday went in a flash.
