I can't remember if we found this due to Sat Nav woman having her nervous breakdown or due to a diversion but it was any easy roadside bag. The geocache took much longer.

Nearing the end of a productive day picking off most of my remaining Isle of Anglesey pillars by bicycle. Seven were sought for and each was found being still in good condition. This one, whilst not the best of the bunch, was a nice one to finish with up on its perch. I just had to oblige it and climbed on top. Wonderful. I dismounted, one contented trigger, and returned to Llanfair P.G. with plenty of time to catch the 1613 train back home.

Nice and easy, down the lane, on the embankment as usual. And also as usual, a bloody great mast nearby. Anglesey is just a forest of masts and turbines. Still, nobody lives there, so nobody to object, I suppose!
