I continued geocaching on Long Island until sundown. Then I visited one more geocache in Queens on my way to dinner in Flushing. At Sentosa in Flushing, I had asam laksa and shrimp puffs. Asam laksa is noodles with fish flakes in a sourish soup. It's quite different from anything else at that restaurant and something for adventurous taste buds. Shrimp puffs, on the other hand, are dollops of minced shrimp wrapped in bacon and fried in batter. I never saw that back in the old country.
Monday: Memorial Day. Sunny. Hotter and more humid than the day before. It had been a long time since I visited the Pocono region, so I took a trip there. There were lots of new geocaches and also a few that I skipped last year for lack of time. One of the new geocaches was near Great Wolf Lodge in Scotrun. I was curious about the place so I went in to take a look. It's a kid-oriented water park / theme park inside of a hotel. Lots of wolf (of course), bear, raccoon, and moose imagery in the hotel decor. There are animatronics in the lobby. They have a mascot character -- likely more than one but I only saw their bear mascot. I didn't stick around for story time because I had one more geocache to visit before dinner... and also, well, because I wasn't a guest. :) (Later that night, I read some online reviews of the lodge. It's very expensive! Rooms go for $200 - $500 per night and a day pass for use of the pool and water slides is $79, so I was surprised at how packed the place was.)
Dinner was at Long John Silver's in Mt. Pocono because it happened to be just across the road from the 2nd last geocache of the day. After that, I hopped onto I-380 and I-80 but found the interstate clogged with traffic because people were returning home from the Memorial Day weekend. So I took the next exit, found one last geocache near the Crossings Outlet Mall, and took local roads to a Wawa store in Stroudsburg (the one I found a few trips ago by accident when I took a wrong turn) to stock up on green tea iced tea and chocolate milk. Chocolate milk in Eastern Pennsylvania is cheaper than regular milk back home.
