This geocache has unfortunately been archived, but this was a geocache we found while we were on vacation one summer on Cape Cod. The reason it is attached to a brick is because most of the time this geocache is underwater (the geocache itself is the pill bottle). This geocache could only be found at just about exactly low tide. It was placed far out on what is called the "Brewster Flats" - an area of a bay in Cape Cod where the tide recedes almost a mile at low tide. You really had to plan to try to get to it at just about exactly low tide, because once the tide starts coming in, it comes in fast. In fact, we did get to it at low tide and by the time we walked the 3/4 mile back to the beach we were up to our chests in water just before we reached the shore. Here's a pic where you can see where the geocache is in relation to where the ocean receded:
When we were looking for geoaches to do that year on vacation and we clicked on the map to see where this one was located in relation to where we were staying, it was really funny because it showed it as out in the middle of the bay - and DH and I were wondering how in the world one could get to it?!? Just took some good planning, that's all! :-) My next post will be about one of my most favorite TYPES of geocaches - and it just so happens that type of geocache requires good planning too...
