Found it Ladybug Kids found Ursa [Sintra]

Sunday, November 7, 2010Lisboa, Portugal

After visiting "Grey Havens" with BTRodrigues, we had enough energy to move to another trailhead and explore the coast further. Just like many caches in Alaska, one can't look at the straightline distance to a cache and get the full story. [i]Down[/i] we went and I looked down an eroded dyke for access to the beach to earn the earthcache there, but Bruno had local knowledge that let me know I didn't want to go that way. So, [i]up[/i] we went, racing the sunset and remaining light. I was able to take some nice photos of the ursa and the noiva from the top of the cliff and then jogged on to the cache. I made a quick find of the cache, signed the log, and then thought we'd hustle back to the car. However, the GPS showed another cache not too far away to the north... This is an absolutely amazing location, very similar to sections of the California, Oregon, and Washington coasts, that I hope can return to soon. Many thanks to Brunu and Natasha for being such wonderful guides and hosts for my tour of the Cascais and Cabo da Roca areas. Thanks for the cache!

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.
