We aimed to do approx 30 caches today but as you know things never turn out the way you plan.
Our first stop was in Cates Park where we were going to pick up 3 easy caches; at least easy to find but Cates Park on a summer day is a zoo. Hard to be stealthy looking when you are surrounded by a 1000 sun worshippers!

Off we go down the trail travelling east along the beach trail and then onto the beach itself. The narrow beach is squished between the low rock wall and the water's edge, but even here people where enjoying the day. Kayakers set up their boats ready for the ride, and other folks came here to get away from the crowds back at the main part of the park.
The GPSr led us up a flight of stairs back into the forest and along a wide shaded path as we continued in our quest for the treasure. And succesful we were; "Deep Cove Cates" was a good name for the cache based on it's hiding location, deep in it's hidey hole. Cache retrieved, log book signed and cache re-hidden, we were on a roll; 1 for 2. LOL

As it turns out I was standing almost on top of it! Well, that was a quick find! LOL
Almost done for the day but we still want to cache, so we went looking for "Refuse to Cache". This was a micro located at a turn around at the end of a road as it bumped up against Hwy #1.

Time to go home and log our finds on GC.com
