Vista Armona [Olh ão]

By: Al-garb, adopted by Alieri Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Thank you to previous team for the feedback and hiding the cache again. New container and logbook are now in place. New hint. Minor adjustments on listing

I went there on a sunday and found the gate closed, but the small door in it was unlocked and a young couple was coming out. So we went inside. Reception was closed. We walked all the way to the cache and back, saw other people walking about, others jogging, but no one asked anything from us.
Here is a photo of the timetable at the gate:

Can´t understand if it apllies only to reception and interpretation center or all the park.
------- ------------
Nova recipiente e logbook estão agora no lugar. Nova dica. Pequenos ajustes na página da cache.

Eu fui lá num domingo e encontrei o portão fechado, mas a porta pequena estava destrancada e um jovem casal estava saindo. Então entrámos. A recepção estava fechada. Nós andamos tod o o caminho até a cache e voltámos, vimos outras pessoas caminhando, outros a correr, mas ninguém nos pediu nada.
Aqui está uma foto do horário na porta:

Não se percebe se se aplica apenas à recepção e centro de interp retação ou a todo o parque.

Fonte Rocha da Gralheira - S ão Brás de Alportel

By: noearcateam Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

14-3-10 16:20:42 Primeira da tarde. F ácil de chegar ao local, mas difícil de procurar sem chamar a atenção de dois cães muito ruidosos.
A dona também veio ver o que se passava mas depressa se fartou de olhar e foi-se embora. A partir daí foram 3 minutos entre procurar, logar e esconder. A cache está ok. Acho os containers deste owners fantásticos
Obrigado pela cache.

"O Algarve a meus p és" - Sai da Concha 01

By: Sai da Concha Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

14-3-10 18:29:30 Vindo da Ermida de Barranco do Velho, sempre fora de estrada, foi um passeio agrad ável. Perto do ponto zero estavam uns mugles, que foram embora quando cheguei, pelo que pude procurar sem problemas. Quer dizer, ouve problema porque estava a olhar para o arbusto errado SMILIE
A esta hora, a vista é perfeita. Obrigado por me trazerem aqui.
Tudo ok. Obrigado pela cache.

Ermida do Barranco do Velho

By: hugo.jesus Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

14-3-10 18:02:45 Nunca tinha vindo para estes lados. Ao tentar concluir a multi Serra do Caldeir ão, fiz um pequeno desvio para encontrar esta cache, bem recheada, num ponto com vista sobre a localidade. Sacos com alguma humidade, mas cache ok.
Obrigado pela cache.

14-3-10 19:03:40 J á cá tinha vindo, em condições similares (já sem luz solar), mas desta vez pude encontrar a cache (fui a segunda pessoa hoje).

The Golden Hinde 2 (SE1, London)

By: LostInTheWoods! Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

8-3-10 13:24:00 Last cache on our London weekend. It was nice to read the story about the boat. It was not so nice when a seagull droped "something" only a few inches away from me. Miracles? yes, I 'm a believer :) Obrigado pela cache. Greetings from Portugal

By: Firelanterns Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Wobbly Bridge

By: frozboz Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

8-3-10 12:56:41 Many, many mugles, but we could retrieve the cache without a problem. The hint (a tricky one) helped a lot, but coordinates were ok. Obrigado pela cache. Greetings from Portugal

Golden Gallery Virtual Cache

By: flashj Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Virtual

8-3-10 12:19:42 What a great experience this cache was. After visiting St. Pauls Cathedral in Malta, I was curious to see what I would find. This was a delight for both my eyes and ears, as those who'll visit whispers gallery will recognize. What a great view from above!!! It was worth the climbing (and the fee). On one of the photos you can see Ajsa hapiness on "finding" this cache. Obrigado pela cache. Greetings from Portugal PS: if you are going to London by train, grab the brochures that say "2 for 1" at the train station and keep your train tickets, as you'll safe lots of money (we used it for this monument and for a Thames cruise - both half price!!). Bring a lot of brochures, as each one holds 3 vouchers (1 vouche r=2 persons)

7-3-10 13:42:32 Found it easily using the hint. It was a sort of revenge from previous 2 DNFs. Then we met a very nice geocacher couple who arrived searching for this cache, and we talked for a while. They give us some nice tips about Greenwich and London. Kind regards to Petespaws team. Obrigado pela cache. Greetings from Portugal

Boris' place: City Hall

By: frozboz Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5-3-10 22:03:00 In the afternoon we tried to find it, but there were too many mugles. After dinner we could find and log it, doing some stunts as we shot some photos to distract mugles from our real purpose. The location is still under works. Obrigado pela cache.
