Long Island - North Shore

Tackled some geocaches on the North shore of Long Island today. Driving on that side of the island was rather tedious because of the slow and circuitous Route 25A, but I didn't use as much gas as I thought I would. It probably would have been a better idea to cut over to Route 25 for part of the way, but it was simpler to stick to the same route number all the way.

The weather started okay, but cloudy. Then later, the rain began. One unexpected benefit from the rain was the attendant waived the fee at Caumsett State Park. On the other hand, the cache that was there involved a 2.6-mile round trip, so perhaps while it was raining wasn't the best time to do it either.

The cashier at Long John Silver's noticed the Where's George bills tonight. Then he showed them to a co-worker. The funny part is I've been using WG bills there every two weeks or so for years, and for quite a while since he became cashier, and he only noticed them this evening? Go figure. I'm probably being a bit too subtle. I should fan them out or something when I pay.
