Wow - what a great hash site - a beach - and on a Saturday.

What a shame the weather is so sub-optimal, but nevertheless, we are planning on being there at 4pm today. Maybe see some of you there?

[edit] Expedition

The rain stopped precipitating early afternoon - perfect timing, and we arrived at the spot around 3:30pm. It was at the top of a sand-dune about 200m from the edge of the Pacific Ocean - Ideal! So a lovely day out for dad, mum and the kids. We found a bit of driftwood that served as a marker-pole. On the strike of 4pm it started raining again, so sand-castling stopped for the day, and we headed back to civilisation. Oh, and we also found a geocache on the way, about 200 metres from the hash-point.
