Where did we go on a Wherigo Cache?

It was our final day on the Isle of Man today so we only had the morning to play before catching the boat back. The weather was still cold at around 3°C and the wind had picked up to a nice force 6 easterly just in time for the ferry crossing! So as to continue...
