|Coombe Abbey Country Park Lake|
We decided to visit Coombe Abbey this weekend and whilst we were I had a look at what Geocaches were in the area. There are actually two Geocaches located in the park itself; not very impressive really due to the size of the park and how popular it is. We set off looking for the first one and I decided to take a more direct route to its location. I led my family off the beaten path and through the trees only to find that we soon having to jump over water filled ditches as my GPS signal bounced all over the place. We got there in the end though and laughed because if we had only followed the path around it would have led us straight to it. But still, we had lots of fun. The cache is located somewhere in this picture (thankfully it was not in one of those trees that have been chopped down).

We have taken many photographs within Coombe Abbey County Park over the years and today I decided to take a few of the trees within the park. This photograph is of our favourite tree; just look at that lovely face on the tree trunk!

And here is the same tree after we had given it some arms...

As with most Geocaching trips, the second cache led us to a part of the park that we haven’t really visited before; the cache was located near to these lovely tree stumps with butterflies carved onto the stumps.

And also this tree stump that was covered with fungi...

So that was our Geocaching trip to Coombe Abbey Country Park; a good day out within the park but it is probably in need of a few more caches to keep us busy.
