Cloudy, 55-60°F. The whole day, it looked like it was about to rain but didn't. I didn't have any geocaches in particular that I wanted to do today, so I just went to Salem County nearby. I figured I might as well do as many as I can in that area before the biting flies come out. So I was at Fort Mott State Park, a few Alloway Creek natural areas, Abbots Meadow, and the Mad Horse Creek WMA. Those were mostly walks on flat paths and dirt roads since there are no hills in the marsh areas.

In the evening, I returned to "Welcome To Travis Cove". I actually stopped by this cache site earlier in the day but found that the water level was too high. The cache is on a peninsula in a tidal area in the Delaware River. At high tide, the beach is completely underwater, so there is no access to that location without trespassing. I checked the tide tables on the phone and low tide was just after sunset, so I figured I should leave this cache for the last of the day. I returned shortly before dusk and had no problem walking on the beach to the cache site. I was surprised the cache hadn't washed away since it's just sitting under a small rock and not anchored to anything.
