Brooklyn and Birthday Party

I hadn't been geocaching in Brooklyn for over a year. I had a bit of Brooklyn-phobia, although after today, I'm not sure why. I imagined it was a congested place with narrow streets and a lot of traffic. That's true in some parts of Brooklyn, but I spent most of the day near the Belt Parkway and the shore area, which wasn't that bad. Anyway, since I hadn't been to Brooklyn in a while, there were many geocaches waiting to be found and I did quite a number of them before sunset.

Squeezed in one last geocache at night near Forest Park in Queens. Then I headed over to Johnny Rockets in Forest Hills to join up with the group celebrating freakylynx's birthday. Also there were Damian, jbadger, skyfirefox, cubbi, and several others. After dinner, we headed over to freakylynx's place nearby for cake and cider. Had to leave before midnight before my car turned into a pumpkin before I lost all ability to navigate my way out of Queens, but it was an enjoyable gathering and I had a good time.

Candle-blowing action!
