#40 WISH YOU WERE HERE! (GC130NW)
Along the Onrust River estuary in Onrus, South Africa
This micro cache is a park-and-grab next to a small clearing along the course of the Onrust River Estuary.
The Germanic and Celtic peoples considered springs and wells sacred places as they believed gods and other deities resided in such pools. The Germanic tribes would often throw the armour and weapons of defeated enemies into bogs and other pools of water as offerings to their gods.
Some people believed that the guardians or dwellers of a well would grant them a wish if they paid a price – that price often being a coin dropped into the water. Depending on how the coin landed at the bottom, the wish would then be granted… or not.
This was Day 15 of 30 consecutive caching days.
