July 12 – Morning Tea with Joan Langhorne at Bosham

And a Walk along the Seashore at Low Tide

Hello from 1066 – A Medieval Mosaic

Today we went to visit Joan at her home in Bosham for morning tea. Joan is the church archivist for Holy Trinity Church in Bosham. We met her last year when we visited the church on 27 June 2016. She also came to our exhibition opening in Hastings. We had a lovely talk and then she took us out to Ferry Barn walkway where we walked along the seashore at low tide. Great views of Bosham from here. There is a geocache here so I introduced her to geocaching. I always love showing people who are completely unaware of geocaching that there are little boxes hidden all around the country. Mike climbed up the clay bank to retrieve it. It was a good sized box so we left a travel bug in it.

Then Joan had a meeting and we had to go back to our house sit in order to send Rachael some files for printing.

Later in the day we went out again going to Havant first as the church micro details for St Faith’s church had been fixed so we were able to make the find this time. We took 2 travel bugs and left one. One of the travel bugs has travelled 26000 km, a very well travelled bug. We also went to visit the final for Secret Gardens again as we had thought again about where it might be hidden plus we had to be given a hint by the CO and this time we found it easily. Not sure why we missed t last time.

Two ladies asked us directions and I thought I couldn’t help them then I realised I had the cell phone and soon managed to send them in the right direction. The funny thing was that the path I sent them down was exactly the path we needed to take.

We have now been to Bosham three times now and still have not done the multi at the church so we drove back to Bosham to do it. It is quite a tricky cache and despite being quite familiar with the church now we still had trouble with the number of sides of the steeple and the devil’s number but in the end, I guessed a little bit and was able to check the coordinates on the geo-checker before an eventual easy find. We were so glad to finally find the cache and we gave the geocache a favourite point, both for the church and for the challenge.
