I did, however, make time in the afternoon for a few local geocaches. The first one was Bridge View on a bridge over the Brandywine Creek. Then I went to Chipmunx Playground in Woodley Park. I didn't see the trail but it was only a short walk through open woods, so that wasn't a problem. The last one was Think Tink in Brandywine Creek State Park. I think I know where the official parking area is on this side of the river but I took a shortcut trail from the nearby residential area.
As soon as I parked the car for the first cache of the day, I realized that I didn't have my walking stick with me. Oops. I must have lost it yesterday. So for the two caches that actually required some hiking, I looked for appropriately-sized tree branches. Nature's free walking sticks. Later in the afternoon, I returned to The Quigley Backyard Cache to see if my walking stick was still there. Yes, it was! However, it was hanging from a tree so someone must have found it and placed it there. Wonder who it was. Maybe the person who feeds the cats behind Pathmark. After that, I went to Happy Harry's to get some after-Halloween 50%-discount candy. Saw jackalopejess there in what has got to be the shortest furmeet ever. :)
