Day #2772Title: Days Of SUMMER
Location: Barleylands, Billericay
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We said many sad farewells today as the UK’s Mega Essex 2015 campers headed home. My final duty as Official Photographer was to attend the Goodbye To Essex event at Barleylands. Tea and cake was served and the campsite gradually emptied. Afterwards, Alistair and I decided to have a walk to find some more of the newer caches around the area, including one which required me to wade across a small stream in my wellies while he had the camera ready in case I fell over! All dry (bad luck Alistair!), we walked back to the car and spotted the SUMMER sign at the entrance to Barleylands, an appropriate image for today.

Day #2771Title: The Mega Flags
Location: Barleylands, Billericay
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The morning after the night before… And my penultimate day as Official Photographer for the UK’s Mega Essex 2015. We started it off well with The Big Breakfast where we were provided by a hearty cooked brekkie – most welcome after a night under canvas. The flags were fluttering in the breeze just after breakfast at the campsite, a grand collection representing all of the events of the past week. Then onto the Langdon Plotlands CITO (Cache In, Trash Out) event where volunteers helped the reserve’s wardens to clear rubbish and prune brambles around the paths. Finally an afternoon in Hockley woods, attending From Gavin to Stacey, the handover event from the 2015 Essex Committee hosted by the 2016 UK Mega North Wales Committee.

Location: Barleylands, Billericay

Notes: The day has dawned! Plenty of work for me as Official Photographer for the UK’s Mega Essex 2015 Event. There was a lot to see, some interesting Lab Geocaches (prototypes) to play with and friends to meet. Alistair makes the acquaintance of Signal The Frog, the official Geocaching mascot.

Day #2765Title: Welcome To Essex
Location: Barleylands Farm, Billericay
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s the start of a busy week, as I’m Official Photographer for the UK’s Mega Essex 2015 Geoaching Event and the week-long geocaching festival being held around the county leading up to it. This evening was the Welcome To Essex event where geocachers from near and far convened on Barleylands Farm just south of Billericay. There were already plenty of folks camping when I arrived (I won’t be staying on site until later in the week). We enjoyed a BBQ and live entertainment in the marquee, and much chat, of course. This flag was fluttering in the campsite – showing the three Seaxes of Essex which have represented the County since 1605.
