Playing Games in the Rain: Western NJ and Stroudsburg

It didn't look like it was raining much this morning so I went out. And indeed, it was okay, relatively speaking, for a while. I got maybe 5 minutes of sunshine in the early afternoon. Then, on my 9th geocache, somewhere in Stroudsburg, the deluge started. From then on, I picked only the quick and easy caches so as not to get too wet.

This time, one of the geocaches was actually hidden inside a fake (ornamental) bird and left sitting in a tree. I'd say that the cache hider had gone cuckoo, but it's too obvious of a pun. Anyway, that one's for the birds.
