Scowles, Mazes and Caves

Puzzlewood
Puzzlewood was the first place I visited on Sunday and it was very muddy. I wandered between the moss-covered scowles and gnarled trees, peering into unexpected gullies, and over little bridges, and it all felt somehow magical. Apparently it may have been an inspiration for Tolkien's Middle Earth.

There was a shower of hailstones that day.

When the hail had stopped, I headed to the Jubilee Maze. I got a little bit lost, but eventually emerged to find the museum of mazes. I read about labyrinths, the Sator Square, palindromes being used as cures and protection as the devil would become confused, locations of other mazes in the UK, and other various interesting maze related facts.

King Arthur's Cave was the next destination on the agenda. Woolly rhinoceros bones had been found there and there are the usual tales about King Arthur surrounding the cave also. I crept inside the cave and looked for bats and then instead for a geocache. My dad had printed out details of one near to the caves and had given me a Garmin to use to find it, but it was my mum that eventually found the tupperware box.

I've never been geocaching. Is it as much fun as it sounds?

I've actually only done it a few times (with my parents!), but have found it quite fun. I have quite a bad sense of direction, so get easily confused when doing it, but eventually do seem to find them. Maybe if I do more geocaching it might help my sense of direction? :)
