Rehoboth Beach

Sunny, 90°F. Today, I went down Route 1 to Rehoboth Beach. It was more of a shopping trip than a geocaching trip, although I did get a bunch of caches on the way and in town. I'm not that fond of going to the outlet malls, especially in the Summer when you have shopping traffic combined with shore traffic, making the whole resort town pretty much a nightmare. However, I was down to my last pair of general-purpose shoes and the Reebok outlet over there is one place where I can usually find size 15 wide shoes and try those on. Plus, I had a set of outlet mall coupons for this month. I also stopped at the Corelle Outlet to buy a single plate to replace the one that I took to the office. Yes, I'm pretty much a one-or-two-items-per-store shopper.

Most of the geocaches I did today were on or near Route 1 and US-13. I think the two most challenging geocaches of the day were "MHS Victory" and "1~11~11". At the latter, it seemed the entire mosquito population of Rehoboth Beach was at the cache site. "Reduce Reuse Recycle" was a difficult hide too but it took me just a second to realize that it was hidden the exact same way as the cache owner's other cache, "Summer Snow", and how convenient it was that I visited the two caches in sequence.

Dinner was a turkey burger at Hardee's in Middletown. I figured it would be better to go most of way home before stopping for food, so I wouldn't be faced with a 1.5-hour drive after dinner.
