Pelican

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Barrenjoey

Sunday, August 7th, 2005

Had a really good hike and geocache around Barrenjoey today, with Chris and Belinda. It was a perfect day for it. Not a cloud in the sky and utterly calm. First we hiked up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse and we were lucky enough to book into the next guided tour (we only ...

Activating Geocaching on the 60CS

Wednesday, June 8th, 2005

I wondered why I had no geocaches showing up in the geocaching section of my new 60CS, even though I'd just uploaded nearly 500 cache waypoints. Acting on a hunch, I changed the default unfound geocache logo from a closed cache box to a green dot (the same green dot that ...

A nice round 20

Sunday, January 2nd, 2005

My boyfriend and I decided to geocache while actually hiking through the bush today. The thing about city geoaching is that you can do many in a short amount of time but you don't get much exercise. I�ve now logged 20 cache finds. A nice round number. The Hunt For Pilatus Part ...

Angophora Reserve

Monday, October 25th, 2004

Drove around Bilgola Plateau after work, trying to get the bearings of the Among The Big Gums geocache. I got to within 20 meters so I know where it is, but I didn't want to walk into the bush with only hiking sandals on, and Dr Who was about to ...
