Sunny, 55-60°F. I was planning on hitting some Kent County geocaches. That led to doing some morning yardwork; if I'm going that way anyway, I might as well save a trip and drop something off at the yard waste collection site. This time, it was a bunch of sticks and fallen branches that had accumulated in the yard over the winter. I thought it was just a few branches but by the time I was done picking up everything, I nearly couldn't fit it all in the trunk. When I got to the yard waste site, I saw that they'd really let the place go downhill. It was full of yard waste, all the way to the entrance, so it looked like they hadn't been keeping up with the grinding. No matter. I just backed my car up to the gate and left the tree branches there.

The rest of the day was a tour of Kent County to round up all the new geocaches. There was a variety of scenery; everything from beaches to swampy wooded areas. (I took a picture of the creek but behind me was a lot of stagnant water and soft muddy ground.) Also went to the same Hardee's in Middletown for both lunch (BBQ chicken tender wraps) and dinner (turkey burger). I don't usually stop anywhere for lunch when geocaching, but I decided to make an exception because I haven't been to Hardee's in quite a while and I had a lot of coupons.
