Ever had one of those days when you dream about something and then you wake up and go and do it? Yes, it was surreal.

46°F and sunny. After finding one new geocache in nearby Ramsey, I crossed the Tappan Zee Bridge to Westchester to do a bunch more. I thought it would be good weather for walking a bit more, so I started in Northern Westchester (the portion of the county North of I-287) and hiked some of its rolling hills. Then I bagged a bunch of quick geocaches in Southern Westchester. I'm surprised that there were so many new geocaches to find. Looks like cache placement activity there has picked up a bit.

My phone case broke. Since I was passing Palisades Center on my way home, I thought about dropping in to get a replacement phone case. Saturday is a busy day at the mall, so I was only going to go in if I could find a parking space easily. Well, surprise! It was easy to find a parking space. I guess Easter weekend is not a shopping weekend. Checked Best Buy, but they might as well be Worst Buy with those prices. Staples and the Sprint store weren't any better. Only Target had a phone case at a reasonable price. (a little more than what I paid an Amazon seller for that first case. Best Buy, etc, would go out of business if everyone found out about Amazon seller prices.)

After that, I had some chicken stuff from Panda Express at the mall food court.
