Labor Day - Main Line

Cloudy, 85-90°F. I started the day with breakfast at Old Country Buffet. In retrospect, the dollar-off Labor Day coupon wasn't really that great but I thought it would be nice for a change since I haven't done an OCB breakfast in a while. Predictably, breakfast turned into a two-hour meal, which was alright since I didn't have much planned.

When I got back from breakfast, I noticed that some of the weeds I hadn't weeded out were blooming. So I did some wildflower photography. It's useful to have pictures of the flowers because there were some weeds I had trouble identifying by leaves alone. So what I have are Asiatic dayflowers and Virgin's Bower vines.

I'd planned on staying home if it started raining but it didn't. Since there was threat of rain though, I took the low-risk route of doing a bunch of geocaches not too far from home. I started in Woodlyn and Swarthmore and proceeded through Media, Haverford, Lower Merion, Ardmore, and Bala Cynwyd. The last cache of the day is just across the city line in Philadelphia. Although there was a bit of rain here and there, it didn't actually start raining heavily until after sunset so I was able to do a whole afternoon of geocaching after all.
