Geocache Description:


CZ:
„Na Mandlu“ je malá vodní nádrž obklopená lesem a chatovou osadou nad obcí Retová. Od nepameti je používaná jako koupalište lidmi z okolí, vcetne mých prátel a mne. Místu dal název starý mandl, jehož jednopatrovou empírovou budovu mužete videt nedaleko. (Loc: N49°56.417' E16°22.430')

Koupání samotné je pro otrlejší jedince; Mandl je prírodní koupalište, napájen je potokem tekoucím z lesu nad ním, takže voda bývá studená a zelená. Kdo se nechce koupat, muže se vyvalit na tráve, nebo pod stromy na západní stráni nad rybníckem. Bývala tu i hospoda, ale z té už zbyly jen základy.

Na Mandlu byly ve skutecnosti rybnícky dva. Ten dolní zustal po porušení hráze povodnemi trvale vypušten a zarustá porostem.

Kolem rybnícka vede modrá turistická stezka mezi Ústím nad Orlicí a Litomyšlí. Drive-in cacheri se dostanou asi 500m od cache, pokud jste místní chatar a neplatí pro vás zákaz vjezdu, tak i blíže. ;-)

Okolí rybnícku i nedaleké hrište je každorocne místem konání nekolika akcí, bližší info na (visit link) nebo (visit link)

Cache samotná je tvorená klasickou svacinovou krabicí cca 22x12x7cm. Puvodní obsah je tématicky zameren na rekreaci u vody. Rádi bychom, aby to tak zustalo. Kinderhracky si prosím nech do jiných cachí.

Prejeme prima výlet a štastný lov.

EN:
„Na mandlu“(at the mangle) is little pond surrounded with forest and cottage area near village Retova. The pond is used for bathing by people from around. The name of this place is given by the former mangle, the empire building of that can be seen nearby. (Loc: N49°56.417' E16°22.430')

Bathing is for rough ones only, because the water is usualy cold and green. Enjoy laying on the lawn at the pond or under the trees on the next bank. It used to be pub nearby but it was demolished recently.
Formerly there used to be two ponds, but the lower one was damaged by the floods and is pernamently empty.

„Na Mandlu“ lays on the blue touristic route from Litomysl to Usti nad Orlici. Drive-in cachers should leave their cars about 500m far from cache.

Some annual events take place at the pond and nerby football pitch, for info visit (visit link) or (visit link) (CZ only)

Cache itself is typical dinner box. Original contain is focused on recreation at the water, so we were pleased if you kept this point. Kinder egg toys leave in other caches please.

Have a nice trip and good hunt.
