Large bolt, estmated at 2" dia. Located E side of a low wooden barrier. OS sketch useful but not essential as there was a tell-tale depression in the ground.

Didn't spot it at first but once we read logs it was a quick find. Then loads of joggers appeared. Cheers.

Found as YSM133 Palm Bay. Read the log from CJO and found the x but still couldn't find the bolt, then realised what access road to beach meant, climbed over guard rail and up onto the ridge and soon found the bolt, then loads and loads of joggers appeared and must have wondered what on earth we were up to. Log - 2" bolt between guard rail and access road to beach. Small X engraved on guard rail

Found as YOSM 133. Took me a while to find the X on the rail - as my search began over the other side of the slipway near the geocache. Once the correct side, the Bolt was about 2.5m up the slope.

An easy find once I located the incised cross on the guard rail. Lovely morning and good views along the coast.

Loads of free easy parking nearby on seafront. Was expecting the usual pain of digging up a covered rivet but was pleasantly surprised when kicking a few feathers in a likely spot revealed the golden rivet. Ok views of the sea on an overcast day

A rivet in a block of concrete hidden amongst the grass on a bank behind a guard rail. It took a bit of poking about before I found it. Look for the cross thatís been incised on the guard rail pipe. The rivet is up the bank behind it about 2.1/2 metres away.

Had to dig around to find this one as the grass had grown over it.

Found my way to the site of the rivet on a wet, windy and miserable day. Found all the marks noted on the OS GPS site and even put my hand where the rivet should be. Couldn't see it, but I am sure it's there. One for a better day when there is less vegatation.
