By the time I left home, it was the middle of the afternoon so I didn't expect to do too many geocaches. First stop was Flower Patch on Broom in Wilmington. When I got there, Yogalin, Crafty Seahorse, and Evanspack were already searching. This was a tough one because it was well-concealed and we didn't want to trample the flowers while searching. Funny thing is the locals didn't seem to pay any attention to a bunch of people doing strange things in the middle of a flower patch. Next stop was Noah's Ark in Elsmere. This too was difficult. I started looking and then rflester joined in the search. It turned out to be in a spot on the other side of the creek that was uncomfortably close to, if not inside, someone's backyard.
Next 4 geocaches were easy in comparison. Those were all in Valley Garden Park in Greenville. I did a 2-mile hike on the many trails and found Berries, Valley Garden Park -Part Two, WOLVERINE, and Hobbs Trail. The last one was technically in a state park area just outside of Valley Garden Park, although strangely, the only access to that area is from Valley Garden Park.
