This has got to be one of my best caching memories from last year: A group of cachers from south Wales and others from nearer the cache site joined forces to tackle this 5/5 cache. Probably the most fun to be had in deep mud... You can read my log here: The Blorenges log (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=ed6607f6-1893-4afc-92e5-7f365228bcc0&IID=b9ea004b-fa42-4d8a-800b-60c1642508fe)

The whole gang, sparkling clean at the start...

but it didn't last long, we were soon glooping happily towards the Bristol channel to collect numbers off the wrecked barges...

Yes, we went through all that just to find this...

Just wondering if this may be happening in 2011?

It is a brilliant fun. I did it with *mouse* and Shrubbery Man back in September 2008.

You need to wait for a really low tide (i.e. Spring tide), so you will have to wait until either end of August or end of September now.

Link to local tide tides (http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/Environment/Parks+and+open+spaces/The+coast/tidetimetable.htm) (add 10mins for Clevedon)
