This cache is part of the Maine R.O.S.E. Series and is meant to be really obvious, simple and easy. It's perfect for cachers who want a quick find, or who are not up for a physical challenge. The purpose of this series is to promote caching to everyone, and create a fun family cache experience. Some fellow cachers get discouraged by vague descriptions and caches that appear to be difficult hides. Our attempt here is to make the cacher aware of the entire situation before they attempt the cache. If you have any comments that should be added, please let us know.
Directions: this cache is located at back beach. i worked in castine for six months several years back, but never took the time to check out the beach. my best friend later showed me the beach and it quickly became my favorite place in castine. there will be few times when there are not muggles in this area, so please use stealth.
Parking: there is ample space for parking, either on the beach or on the opposite side of the road.
Difficulty: this cache has been rated 1.5 for difficulty because the cache is not in plain sight. you will need to remove the cache from a man made structure on the side of the road.
Terrain: this cache has been rated 1.5 for terrain because there is no trail.
Distance: the distance from the parking area to the cache is roughly 20-100 feet (or more), depending on where you choose to park.
Cache Container: the container is a small camo covered film canister.
More Information: This series has been developed in collaboration with Hollora and Cache Maine. We have each committed to hiding a dozen rose caches in our area. The release of these roses will be sporatic in hopes to have three dozen live by Valentine's Day 2007.
