Rainy, 85-90°F. Today, I set out to finish off the remaining six geocaches placed by the Chester County Historical Society. Five of them were up in Chester Springs and one was in Phoenixville. All these were in touristy areas. Anselma Mills, with a working waterwheel and grain grinding demonstrations, was especially educational. I also saw a weird sculpture outside Chester Springs Studios in the Yellow Springs area. 5Batts joined me when I was looking for a cache in Yellow Springs and I was glad for the reinforcement because some CCHS caches still need finetuning of their coordinates.

Once I was done with the last CCHS cache in Phoenixville, I could see the gathering rain clouds. Even so, I was still able to squeeze in a few hiking caches and two quick ones around the Towne Center mall before it started raining heavily. I retreated to Burger King in Phoenixville for an early dinner. This BK is notable for having internet terminals in addition to free wi-fi internet. I brought my own laptop though, so I didn't use a terminal.

After dinner, I saw that the rain had stopped. So I went over to Tredyffrin Township for a few more geocaches, finishing up at night in Wilson Farm Park.
