There is a cliff fall near the bath house and the area is fenced off. It could be the end for this cache...

As the rain was arriving this afternoon, we took the opportunity to get settled into our beach hut and relax whilst the rain beats down outside, weird I know, but it’s kind of peaceful with the sound of the sea breaking in Broadsands Bay!!! Anyway, before I chill, I took a wander over the hillside to Elberry Cove and perfect timing to try and resuscitate this one after 9yrs as everyone was scurrying home, so a common sense approach took me to a relatively quick find at the second tree I looked!!!

Our sons were enjoying themselves at a nearby shooty-laser-alternative-to-paintball battleground, so Mrs Abanazar and I took the short drive here for a little walk and a few groundspeak caches.

As we descended into Elberry Cove, my eye was immediately taken by the old building on the far side - I love remnants such as this. Then I noticed a cache on my GPSr celebrating the building - a bath house! But a closer inspection revealed that it was an opencaching box (they all appear the same at first glance on my Garmin) - even better, since we like to find those when we can.

It took us quite a while to hunt GZ down, as we couldn't get the correct altitude, and my wide-ranging searching unnecessarily took me up a couple of terrain ratings. When I did eventually get to the right spot, I resorted to the tried and tested stick-tapping method for finding long-forgotten tupperware … and straightaway I got the tell-tale sound of hollow(ish) plastic box :-)

It was great to find this cache in such good condition: clean and dry, the only sign of age was some insignificant ripping to the black fabric of its bag.

Back at base, I looked forward to logging this … but then discovered that it had been archived. The opencaching query on my GPSr is clearly older than I thought! Thankfully, on emailing the CO that all is well with this cache, he promptly re-enabled it:-)So I can log it, and more importantly others can continue to find it and discover the old bath house - be sure to have a look at the old engine remains if you do.

Thanks for the cache (and for re-enabling it so promptly).

Tried this one way back in the summer and gave up because the GPS was all over the place.  Tried again today on a circular walk from Churston Court, down to Elberry, along to Churston Woods and onto the Churston Court.  Much quicker find this time, although I'm sure I looked in that tree before!!!

I wasn't sure I had time for this one as well this evening but It was the only OpenCache left in Torbay for me to do and I really should have left it for another week but I couldn't resist it.  I  found the gc one first then followed the arrow straight to this cache which is amazing given the tree cover in the locale.

There are a few other names in the book so hopefully the owners will sign up with Opencaching at some point. Thanks for another one in a worthwhile location Paul, I enjoyed the peace and quiet of these two Opencaches this evening before the pace quickened a little later on!

Well this was a tough one, had me going round in circles for a while. Very well hidden cache.

Took the RNLI geo-coin to take to Falmouth Lifeboat station cache.

I saw there was a geocache and opencache of the same name and as i only had my phone with me I thought they were the sameone,We had walked all the way from Berry Head to do this one and now I see they are different caches.We had found the geocache one and were only 33metres away from this one.
