Jersey Shore

Traffic was very heavy on the way down. Lots of people were heading to the shore. However, I saw an electronic sign saying "Sandy Hook closed. No parking." No reason was given, so I don't know what the story is on this.

Did a few geocaches in Central Jersey and the rest in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. One thing I was surprised at is there were no mosquitoes today. There were still ticks, of course. I found one crawling around and left it on Route 70. 1 down, millions to go.

I was having a bit of a hard time finding one tiny geocache. Then, as I was looking, I bumped my head on something. I turned around to see what hit me and saw the bison tube wedged in the spot where I bumped my head. Now, that's what I call using my head!

Dinner and pears in Edison. Tonight's disaster was the flying teapot. It slid off the table somehow. I still don't know how it happened. Actually, it happened so quickly that I didn't know it was the teapot from my table until I noticed that there wasn't a teapot on my table any more. I suspect it's a combination of the table not being quite level and a wet patch on the table, but even that is not a satisfactory explanation because, from where it was, the teapot had to move more than a foot to leave the table. I must return to see if the process is repeatable. :)
