How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is in the middle of a very busy tourist area, so I thought a virtual would be best. At the coordinates you should see a green object, covered in words. What you need to find is Dr. Boggis' (real) name, and then email me the three words that surround it (one above, one to the left, one below) to log the cache. If you forgot to look for his name before getting to the cache, it's the only 4-letter male name on the box. Good luck, enjoy the view!
A photo taken and altered by MissJenn shows the front of the object, and the reason for it being there, as told to her and TaranWanderer by a local, while they were scrutinising it to log the cache. This is a vague description of the story, so if anyone knows any more details, please post a note or email me - I've looked fairly extensively online but can't find any more details. The object commemorates a local body-surfer, David C Freeman, who died some years ago (I don't know when). His name reads vertically on the front of the box, as shown in MissJenn's picture. The other words are related to surfing, lifeguards, the ocean, and friendship. Apparently local regulations prohibit putting up an obvious memorial, so they got around the regulations with a bit of creativity!
