This cache has been archived.

EraSeek: I loved this cache, but after much agonizing I have decided to archive it for several reasons. It has been plundered too many times, I cannot easily change the text and location, possible security issues, but most of all, I have too many other caches to maintain, and many more new ideas for caches that I wish to do.

THE NIGHTSEA CACHE

Come find the fairylights, the ferrylights, the fairylights,
Come find the fairylights, and set one of them alight!

Begin at N47° 48.849, W122° 22.952

Come see the roaming eye, the firefly, the roaming eye,
Come see the roaming eye, that casts upon the sea.

@ 316° true.

Come count those before you, strong and true, large and few,
Come count those before you, and the distant eye as well.

The eye = x
Those before you = y,
x + y = z

Now play the numbers game, the GPS refrain, the numbers game,
Now play the numbers game, and begin the game anew.

N47° 48.(Z-2), X,(Y-1)
W122° 23.(Y-6),(Y-1),(Z-1)

Come follow your hearts desire, to the fairyfire, your hearts desire,
Come follow your hearts desire, past the kids in the pirate boat.

On between the hills like waves, and waves like hills, the hills like waves,
On between the waves like hills, you’ll find an abandoned ship.

Stand high and gaze upon the raging sea, feel the freshening breeze,
Stand high and ponder upon those below the sea and “you”.

(Helpful items: compass, flashlight, binoculars, an adventurous spirit.) Please CONCEAL cache again when done.
