Green Key

2:11 pm - This was one hell of an adventure. We only had a few hours left before our cruise ship left and this looked like a fun cache to do. Our plan was to use our snorkeling equipment to swim out to the island, run over to the cache, swim back, return the rental car and get back on the ship.

We put all out stuff in a backpack and triple bagged the camera, GPS and cell phone. Also in the bag were shoes for walking on the island. These were a very good idea as the rocks on the island were sharp!

The swim went ok with flippers and we made it on the island in about 30 minutes. Our electronics were dry. It then took us another 40 minutes or so to walk across the Key to the cache to get the picture and get back.

When we returned to the beach to put our snorkeling equipment back on, some other people had come over on a boat; they looked at us like we were crazy. Off we went and we were back on the island proper in another 35 minutes. We quickly got our stuff together and raced back to dock.

I took a wrong turn and we got stuck in some nasty traffic, making it a bit more stressful for us. When returning the car, we couldn't find one set of flippers. Crap, I left them on the roof of the car back at the beach. There was no time to go back for them, so we finished the paperwork and rushed back to the ship. It seems that a lot of other people were late too, so we made it ok, but it sure was exciting!

Thanks for the adventure!

Sunset Cache

8:53 am - We're not sure how you're supposed to get to this one legally. We wandered through the condos next door that were being built and found access to the beach. Then we walked up the path to the cache. The gate at the top was locked, so we had to go around again through the condos. Good thing we left the gate from the condos open! Thanks for the cache.

Dock Sider

4:56 pm - Yeah, I don't think you could get closer to the dock. Looks like we weren't the only geocachers on the ship! Thanks.
Posted by jeff at 04:56 PM


4:50 pm - Well, we thought this one was on the road side of the fence, so we went all the way around. Nope, no cache up there! Down the hill we went and found it in a much more reasonable spot on our way back to the ship. Thanks!

Sea Princess 4 Cache

2:09 pm - We had a fun walk out to this spot. Anne grabbed the cache. I didn't make it out without getting my shoes soaked, but I guess that's what fun is all about, right? Thanks!

Jake's Seat

12:52 pm - My god, this place was crazy busy - cars honking, people running across the street, nearly getting run over. Good hide for the cache and a nice spot to check out the view - when there aren't so many frickin' people! Thanks.

Hull Bay Hide

La Rogativa

8:08 pm - Based on the description, I expected this one to be closer to the statue. I found the cache on my second check in this spot. It was a little worrysome to stick my hand in there especially at night, but I came out ok. Thanks!

Watch Over Wetlands (WOW #2)

7:07 pm - There was a wedding on the beach today, which was neat to watch. As for the cache, I was waiting for a gator to jump out any second as I was trying to find the cache. Got out unscathed, fortunately. TNLN. Thanks!

Hop To It Cache

6:47 pm - This cache was a good excuse to find the beach. We wandered around a bit and enjoyed the ocean. TNLN. Thanks.

Cache of a Lifetime!

11:26 am - We looked for a while in reference to the hint, but that lead us nowhere.

Eventually I found it in the first place we looked. Well-hidden cache. TNLN. Thanks.

11:33 am - There was a long wait at Stacks' for breakfast, so Rob and I went for a walk. Found it OK and made it back in time for them to call our name and get some yummy pancakes. Thanks!

Posted by jeff at 06:18 PM


5:53 pm - We walked all the way out here from the marina and by this type, we knew we were definitely not going to make it back before dark. Oh well, it was a nice walk. Thanks!

5:45 pm - MotorBug is definitely not a plant guy, but I don't hold that against him.

Lone Dinosaur Park

3:42 pm - We drove by here and the park was swarming with people. We drove through the neighborhood and when we came by again, it was deserted. Weird.

Virus Bravo Eight

1:56 pm - As we were heading towards this one, I saw a really good hiding spot, but my map showed this cache was on the PG&E trail. My map was wrong. Went back down to this spot and found it right where it should be. Thanks!

View of 7 poles

1:22 pm - I wandered into some PO looking for this one, which was completely unnecessary. Grabbed in during a break in traffic. Thanks!
