No Camera

Twice today I really wished I had my camera. We went up to Beaufort to visit with my parents and I didn't think I'd miss it, I mean: Car trip, boring!
The first stop was for a cache (surprise surprise) up the hill behind Kryal Castle (I've always wanted to go to that!) I walked in, logged the cache, no worries, I got back to the car and my pants (trousers for you folks from the UK) and from the knees down I was covered in little burr/seed pod things! It was amazing, and kind of annoying, cos I needed to pick them all off before we could get back in the car. I didn't want to become a weed vector after all!
After having lunch with Mum and Dad, hanging out for a while, doing a cache with Mum, taking Clara for a swim in the dam etc, we headed back home. There was one other cache (a travel bug motel) I wanted to go past, cos I heard it was secured with a padlock that you need a combo for, how cool is that? Anyway, we drove into Ballarat, found the cache, entered the combo, opened the door and WOW! The cache was all set up like a dolls house, with furniture and things and little rooms, with their own doors and numbers for the travel bugs to stay in while they are at the motel. This is the best put together cache I have ever seen, just an amazing amount of work has gone into it. I have someone sending me a photo to show you, it is too cool!
