Henk and I are both on leave, so on Monday we decided to head out to Strandfontein to hunt for our next cache. It’s a bout 40km from us, but then again, everything is in 20km units from us 😉 We left so as to make late brunch at Doornbaai (or Doringbaai) that’s just 5km past Strandfontein.
The R362 runs from Vredendal – en route you pass underneath the Sishen railway line.
We hunted quite a bit for this cache, lol. We were off by a few hundred meters, also, since we think we know the area pretty well, we were trying to figure out where the road actually crosses over the railwayline. Again our navigational skills were tested – hey, we are the lowest of low novices in this game 😉
Eventually we found the bridge.
And that’s when we found out what was meant by micro cahce. We hunted for what seemed like half an hour. Going over shrubs and rocks and looking in any imaginable hiding place. Before giving up for the day and concidering returning later when it wasn’t so hot anymore – badaboom – Henk finds it.
I still got to do the log entry though – but Henk’s writing is a lot neater
This little pub/bistro/bar has the hull of a fishing boat for a porch. Fresh fish daily. Bliss.
