Track Notes

A pleasant stroll through The Pinnacle Nature Reserve and along the Bicentennial National Trail, with eagle-eyed Chifleygrrrl finding GC5DQTM The Cachers First Cache whilst I was on the phone. Crossing under William Hovell Drive, we braved any snakes in the extra long grass up to the entrance to the Weetangera Methodist Cemetery.

A quick look around. Once again my caching companion came up with the goods, fining GC3CF07 Southwell Cemetery at the final GZ.

A hurried return to the boot of a car for a sumptuous birthday spread in the company of a sparkling red.

Thanks all. Nice to get back to it after a month off.
