I hunted 'B' is for Beachhead yesterday, but I'm afraid I must report a DNF. It's not that the cache is missing. There is a good chance it's still around. It's just that the physical surroundings proved too difficult. Navicache's site description simply says Since this is a fairly well-traveled beach, the cache is hidden beneath some greenery. You won't be able to see it until you're standing directly over its hiding place.
Okay, but when I triangulated on the location, it led to the middle of a patch of high brush without any evident trails. Trying to force my way through brambles and over loose footing wasn't my idea of fun. Besides that, there was a $4 parking fee for this state beach. There wasn't any attendant around - else I would have paid - but I noticed a highway patrol car circling the lot and wanted to make my stay as brief as possible.
I found more helpful information when I later read the encrypted clue, so I may return for another try. Why was the site rated 1.5/1.5 with such a vague description? It would be easier to find a quarter tossed over your shoulder into a thicket of rosebushes than to locate this hide in the middle of a debris field.
