Geocache Description:

Seek a micro cache near a beautiful beach in Bang Sare. Weekdays the beach is fairly empty. Weekends it is very crowded. Access to the cache is somewhat hidden from view, but remember to be in stealthmode. Muggles in Thailand are very curious.


This cache is dedicated to a friend and geocacher in South Korea who goes by "bluesky61". He has hidden over 750 caches. I have found 416 of them so far. I have found more of his than I have found by any other geocacher by over 100. Hopefully, he can visit Thailand someday and find this one. 

About the title. From Wikipedia:

"Blue Sky" is a song by the American rock band the Allman Brothers Band from their third studio album, Eat a Peach (1972), released on Capricorn Records. The song was written and sung by guitarist Dickey Betts, who penned it about his girlfriend (and later wife), Sandy "Bluesky" Wabegijig. The track is also notable as one of guitarist Duane Allman's final recorded performances with the group. The band's two guitarists, Duane Allman and Betts, alternate playing the song's lead: Allman's solo beginning 1:07 in, Betts joining in a shared melody line at 2:28, followed by Betts' solo at 2:37. The song is notably more country-inspired than many songs in the band's catalogue.His debut as a vocalist for the band, Dickey Betts composed "Blue Sky" about his Native American girlfriend, Sandy "Bluesky" Wabegijig, whom he later married. The lyrics leave out any references to gender to make it nonspecific: "Once I got into the song I realized how nice it would be to keep the vernaculars—he and she—out and make it like you’re thinking of the spirit, like I was giving thanks for a beautiful day. I think that made it broader and more relatable to anyone and everyone," he later said.[1] Betts initially wanted the band's lead vocalist, Gregg Allman, to sing the song, but guitarist Duane Allman encouraged him to sing it himself: "Man, this is your song and it sounds like you and you need to sing it." 

If you have never heard it,I highly recommend it and the rest of the Eat a Peach double album. It peaked at #4 on the US Top 200 Pop Albums list.

If that's not enough, the cache is located next to a little place on the beach called Blue Sky. I don;t know anything about it, as places like this tend to come and go rather quickly around here, but it's open air and it looks nice. Maybe I'll pop in one of these days.
