Delaware II - Day 1

There was a bit of sleet overnight. Then it rained in the morning but all that cleared up by the time I was done with the motel breakfast. So for the rest of the day, it was sunny and 32-37°F. Other than wet ground and "rain" from ice melting off the trees, it was a pretty good day for going outdoors. I hadn't done too many geocaches in Wilmington yet so there were a lot I could find within an area of a few square miles.

While looking for "TDOC - Seven Swans a Swimming", I saw a fox. I was looking around for likely hiding spots when it jumped out of a tree hole and ran away. It was only about 20 feet away from another tree hole where the cache was. That wasn't the first time I saw a fox in the woods but it's always a neat surprise. My only regret was not being fast enough with the camera.

Dinner was at Old Country Buffet in Newark. I was going to go to a Korean restaurant recommended by a fellow geocacher but it was closed tonight. I see a problem with dining options in northern Delaware. Other than the usual chain restaurants, I just don't see much out here. I'm guessing for good food, people go to Philadelphia just like I go to Flushing Chinatown.
