Success! To keep these changes, hit “Submit Log Entry” at the bottom of the page.

Hmm. Some of your log formatting is not supported. You might want to remove it and use Markdown formatting.

We were the second to find this cache, so knew where to look for it, and it is definitely gone :-( The grass where the cache was is quite matted down, so it would be tough to keep it hidden. Also every time I have stopped here, there have been people sitting in their cars, looking right over the cache, so it is really tough to be discreet. I'd recommend moving this cache down closer to the beach, probably to the north a ways. Someplace out of view of the people in their cars.

Bathing at Nye Creek (Nye Beach)

I believe this was taken before the dressing rooms (now Yaquina Art Center) were constructed.  That building was built in 1914.  Note the water flume on the left, I'm guessing this was a makeshift shower.  Also note the lumber at the high tide line in the lower right.  Many of the original cottages in Nye Beach were built from lumber scavenged from the beach after lumber barge accidents offshore.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
