Geocache Description:

down by the riverside!

E: That's where this cache is located on the Grândola mountain range, near Melides and Vale de Figueira.

P: É onde a cache esta escondida, na Serra de Grândola, perto de Melides e de Vale de Figueira.

E: The Grândola mountain range is composed of small, but very steep mountains, with peaks at about 200m altitude and narrow valleys at 50m. Since the ground is very irregular, there is no agriculture, only "montado", which is a plantation of cork oak. It is a very peaceful place and if you stay very quiet for a while you will see lots of different birds and maybe a rabbit or two.

The closest road is about 1 km away, but the nicest tracks are along the creeks.

The cache is a tupperware box and contains:

box of bandaids
small flashlight with batteries
bubble-making toy
toy binoculars
comics book

P: A Serra de Grândola é formada por pequenas coinas, bastante íngremes, com picos a cerca de 200m e vales apertados nos 50m de altitude. Como o terreno é muito irregular, não há agricultura; apenas montado - cultura do sobreiro. É um lugar muito pacifico; Se for silencioso verá muitas aves diferentes e, talvez, um ou outro coelho.

A estrada mais próxima passa a cerca de 1 Km. No entanto os caminhos mais bonitos acompanham o percurso dos regatos.

A cache é um "tupperware" que com este conteudo inicial:

Caixa de pensos rápidos
Pequena lanterna com pilhas
Brinquedo de bolas de sabão
Binóculos de brinquedo
Livro de quadradinhos
