This cache is situated just off the Hayling Billy Coastal Path. It allows you the opportunity to explore as much of the path as you like and is particularly cycles/pushchair friendly.
The suggested parking for the cache is just over the Hayling Bridge and on your right hand side at N50.49.828 W000.58.768 (Updated 18 AUG 2007).
The cache theme is art and colours, and in particular the ‘Bauhaus’ art movement. The ‘Bauhaus’ was an innovative architecture and art school founded by Walter Gropius in Germany that operated from 1919 to 1933 and briefly in the United States from 1937 to 1938 and for the approach to design that it developed. Wassily Kandinsky (see local Geocache site ‘Kandinsky Kapers’ - GC113Y2) taught the basic design class for beginners, the course on advanced theory as well as conducting painting classes and a workshop where he completed his colours theory with new elements of form psychology.
For those of a certain age and taste in music, the term ‘bauhaus’ was also known as a English gothic-punk band who debuted with the single ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ which was released in September 1979. Over nine minutes long and recorded "live in the studio" in a single take, it did not enter the UK pop charts, but remained on sale for many years thereafter. The song was used to score the first ten minutes of the 1983 vampire film “The Hunger" which starred David Bowie.
The cache is small and includes a logbook, pencil, stick on eyes, coloured pegs, rubber, geko lizard, French Franc coins and pink flower bracelet. Please feel free to swap items and, if possible, to continue the theme.
Please take care when finding the cache and replace it exactly where you find it.
NB - Congratulations to the 'Pennants' who were the 100th finders of this cache on 03-01-2009.
