Geocaching at the Beach

Geocaching in a new country!

Before I leave home, I try to locate any possible caches that might be in my path.  There are 5 or 6 that are close enough to get to by driving along the coast near our "villa".  This is one of five which was placed along this walkway.  A nice, leisurely, not too difficult to find cache.  The most challenging part is to try to be secretive about crawling around under the walkway.  

I've been obsessive about many things... and this is one of them, so I've learned to let the others ask about it first, then I'm ready to go.  I've been here for 11 days and FINALLY H mentioned that we hadn't found a geocache yet, and he would be willing to go with me early in the morning.  It wasn't so early, but C and Juju joined us.  These caches are quite small and don't hold any trading items, just a log and pencil.

Later in the evening, T went with me back to another area of the beach, and another walkway, and the picture would look the same except the container was larger.  There I traded a Treble Travel Bug (a treble sign attached to a numbered tag) for a GeoCoin.  Here's the coin at the break of dawn looking at the Mediterranean Sea.
Next stop: Maine!


  1. My son-in-law introduced me to geocaching and it is so much fun. I look forward to your next post with anticipation as I am from Maine orginally.

    It was fun to watch my young grandchildren eagerly go from one clue to the other.

  2. Very cool! I have a friend who is into geocaching. Someday I must try it - looks like so much fun!


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
