It is said that the earth's circle which the human race inhabits is torn across into many bights, so that great seas run into the land from the out-ocean.
On April 12, 1961 the Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin became the first human to travel into space, as well as orbit the Earth. 45 years later on the same day we made this cache available in the vicinity of Reykjavik Airport as a reminder to this great event - Cosmonautics Day.
In Iceland the sea is normally far too cold to tempt swimmers, but at Nautholsvik bay in Reykjavik, a thermal beach has been created, where natural hot water flows out into the sea, and you can frolic in the waves as if you were in the Mediterranean! A beach of golden sand has been created and a “pool” has been enclosed nearby, where the water temperature is about 20ºC. Refreshments and various services are available at the beach. Nautholsvik beach is open daily 10:00 to 20:00 from 15th May until 15th September. Tel. 511 6630.
The cache is a glass jar.
Original contents: log-book, pens, a toy.
