Geocache Description:

LV: Vieta pie jūras..
EN: Place by the sea..

LV: 1880. gadā vietējā kuģu būvētavā uzbūvē pirmo tālbraucēju kuģi. Mērsragā pavisam uzbūvēti 22 jūras kuģi. Viens no lielākajiem kuģu būves centriem Kurzemē bija Upesgrīva, kur no 1860.-1915.g. uzbūvēja 66 buriniekus.
Konkrētais objekts Upesgrīvā ir māja, kura atrodas ļoti tuvu krastam. Jūras krasti ir pakļauti pastāvīgai erozijai un izmaiņām, taču laiku pa laikam tas notiek pastiprinātā režīmā. Attiecīgi Rīgas jūras līcī 1969.gadā plosījās spēcīgs orkāns, kas vairākās vietās, ieskaitot Upesgrīvu, izskaloja pamatkrastu un pārbīdīja rasta līniju.
Konkrētā zvejnieku māja ir liecība tam, ka kādreiz šajā vietā ūdens nav bijis tik tuvu. Ir arī redzams, kā notikusi cīņa ar mājas pamatu nosargāšanu.

EN: In Year 1880 local ship yard builds first long-distance ship. In Mersrags in total are built 22 sea ships. Also one of the biggest shipbuilding centers in Kurzeme was Upesgriva, where from year 1860 to year 1915 were built 66 galleons.
Cache object in Upesgriva  is a house that is very near to the coast. Sea shores are exposed to never ending erosion and changes but time to time it is more rough. There was a strong storm in the Riga Bay in year 1969 that affected may places including Upesgriva - the sea shore was rinsed and shore lines were shifted.
This particular fisherman house is a evidence to that in this place by the time it was built water was not so close. Also there can be seen how it was struggled to preserve the foundations of the house.
