Geocache Description:

Cache d’Uvas

"Depois de algum tempo a contemplá-las, quando derrotada pela fome, percebeu que não prestavam para comer"

Cache d’Uvas

Sobre o Local:

A cache encontra-se à entrada da Praia do Carvoeiro, uma vila situada no concelho de Lagoa no Algarve.

Atualmente esta vila é uma forte atração turística na categoria "Sol e Mar", porém poucos conhecem os seus recantos e encantos...

Não é pouco comum encontrar-se moradias nesta vila onde os "avós" ainda cultivam tradicionalmente alguns alimentos para consumo próprio.

Sobre a GeoCache:

Entre Laranjêras e Limoêres cresci eu,

Nesprêras, Amêxêras, Pesseguêres e Perêras eu reguei,

T'mates, Alfaces e Côves Portuguesas vi eu brotar do chão.

Quantas Figuêras e Amendoêras visitei pela manhã,

Quantos ramos de Salsa, Coentres e Hort'lã apanhei eu,

Quantas vagens d'Ervilhas e Favas eu descasquei.

Quantas vezes me disse a minha avó que na podia estragar as Parrêras (Vidêras p'ros amigos) do Avô... porque senão as Uvas na prestavam e na se podia experimentar fazer Vinh' casêre...

Que na faltem Uvas nunca mais! Que na faltem Caches d'Uvas sempre sadies!

Volta infância! Volta porque fui tão feliz a sujar as mãos de terra.

E agora uso as minhas mãos para plantar o(a) Cache d'Uvas. (Estimem e não colham fruta da horta do Ti Gabriel...)

Levem material de escrita.

Cache d’Uvas

About the Place:

The cache is located at the entrance of Praia do Carvoeiro, a village to be found in the municipality of Lagoa in Allgarve.

Nowadays this village is a strong tourism attraction in the category "Sun and Sea", but few know its nooks and charms...

It's not uncommon to find houses in this village where the "grandparents" still traditionally grow some vegetables and fruits for their own consumption.

About GeoCache:

Among Orange & Lemon Trees I was raised,

Loquat, Plum, Peach & Pear Trees I watered,

Tomatoes, Lettuce & Portuguese Cabbage I saw sprouting from the ground.

How many Fig & Almond Trees I visited in the morning,

How many sprigs of Parsley, Cilantro & Mint I harvested,

How many Peas and Beans I peeled.

How many times my grandmother told me that I couldn't shatter the Vines... 'cause otherwise the Grapes would get rotten and we couldn't try to make some homemade Wine...

Well... Let there always be healthy Grape Bunches then!

Oh, Childhood! Come back! Come back 'cause I was so happy in getting my hands dirty in the soil planting and harvesting Nature.

And now I use my hands to plant the Grape's Bunch (Cache(o) d'Uvas). (Esteem and do not reap fruits out of the Uncle Gabriel's yard...)
