Ok so less of a hike and more of a slow meander, but hike began with H 🙂
We came to Haworth this Saturday for the halloween dragon parade. With 99 geocaches under my belt , it would be rude not to grab that special one whilst here for the day. Soon after parking we were in the base of a tree digging out my 100th cache!! And snagged a chopper too.
We walked back down to main street via a church and graveyards , in which there was a clue to finding a cache near the church, we had to work out co-ordinates by the dates on a particular gravestone, yet we could not find this gravestone of ‘tabby’ at all, I think my GPS was out. We did see some interesting names on stones though, ‘pickles feather’ being my favourite and I have called myself it on twitter for the time being 🙂 After this we went to the craft fair, £1 to get in but we got a free brew. I bought some lovely stones, some obsidian to protect from negativity and some hematite which I love but can also give energy. From the fair we visited a few shops, more goodies fell into my poseession 🙂 and it was time for the parade , but nothing was to be seen. We overheard the dragon king saying it would start a bit later at 3pm and not 2, so we trundled to the park for another cache. Spent a good while foraging in foliage for this cache in the park without any joy, so we went back up to main street and saw the dragon. We were a bit disappointed that the ‘parade’ was just one woman lol.
The halloween decorations on the main street were pretty cool.
After a few naughty stops at choccy / sweet shops on the way back to the carpark, onwards and home, not without a little driveby cache outside of Howarth. This had lovely views over the town and was behind a telegraph pole. The log was very wet and we couldn’t sign it , but I used one of my personalised stickers 🙂 pro cacher 🙂 This is a bead I got from that last cache.
