Saturday afternoon we decided to go Geocaching since it looked like it was going to be a nice day. We decided to go and finish the series of caches around the High Cross area and targeted a series of caches hidden around Claybrooke Parva; a lovely looking village close to the High Cross on the A5.

It turned out to be very cold with a biting wind hitting us across the fields and we set off looking for the last of the Geocaches we needed to get in this area. Thankfully the footpaths were not too muddy but the writing of the log books got progressively harder as we went on due to the cold air.
The Claybrooke Parva set of Geocaches took us on a circular walk through the countryside and we did see some nice unusual caches on our tour. This first one was located next to a fence and for the first time in a long time our GPS signal was a little out. It did look obvious though and I am surprised it has lasted so long without being stolen by a passing dog.

This next cache was interesting. The title of the cache was ‘Bugaboo’ and the hint ‘Could this be a bug's life?’ had me expecting that this cache was disguised as a spider or something. Then I spotted this amongst the trees...

I lifted the lid and expected a creature to jump out but there was the log neatly inserted into one of the holes.
|Bug home for a cache|
I think this is some kind of bug home and if you could let me know what it is intended for that would be appreciated. We completed the last of the Geocaches aound Claybrooke Parva with a slight detour to a Leicester Round cache. It looked quite straightforward looking at the map but as always it is never easy when you are faced with fields is it.

So that completes a nice day out around Claybrook Parva. Rather cold but we returned to the car with happy faces having found eight caches.
