Long Island - Soup, Bread, etc

Sunny, 36-45°F. Last Sunday, I completed the Narnia series of geocaches so today, I went for the two bonus caches in this series, "Caspian X" and "Aslan". The coordinates for "Aslan" depend on information from the 6 series caches, while the coordinates for "Caspian X" were written on the "Aslan" cache container. After that, I continued finding geocaches in Mastic and Moriches. I hadn't been to those towns in nearly two years so there were lots of geocaches to find.

The real surprise came in the evening. The Soup, Bread and Caching Love Stories geocaching event was this afternoon but I wasn't in the right location to stop by. On my way back from Moriches, I thought I'd stop by to see the place anyway. I arrived at Panera Bread in North Babylon at 6:30pm, over 2 hours from when the event was supposed to end. I didn't think I'd see anyone from the event there. Well, surprise surprise! Dog & Bear, Captainmath, and Firstmate were still there! So we had a little chat and I got some travel bugs and one of the teddy bears that Dog & Bear was distributing. I missed the main part of the event but it was a nice meetup nevertheless.

After that, I continued on my journey to Flushing Chinatown for dinner. I missed the Northern Blvd exit but I remembered that there was a new geocache two exits further on the GCP in a quiet part of Queens, so I went for it. Sometimes, I think I miss exits on purpose. :) After that, I went for dinner which was at Curry Leaves in Flushing. I had wonton mee and chicken satay. Pretty mundane as far as Malaysian food goes but I needed photos of the former for my collection. I saw "squid with watercress" on the menu and wanted to try that but Curry Leaves was out of squid tonight. I think I know what dish this is from the old country so it will be interesting to order this to see how close they get to the original. I'll ask again next time.
