Christmas Weekend

The weather was really strange over the 4-day weekend. It was 60 to 70°F and rainy. Thursday had the most rain, so I decided not to get too far from home. Fortunately, there are always nearby geocaches I'd saved for... a rainy day. After finishing the caches around Newark and Pike Creek, the next stops were in Kennett Square and Downingtown.

Christmas Day was a good time to continue exploring up the southwest side of New Jersey, through Cherry Hill, Burlington, Bordentown, and Chesterfield. There were a number of caches in the "Stay and Play Awhile" series that I had no idea why I skipped on previous trips up this way that turned out to be easy. It's likely that I simply didn't think those were doable during the Summer because caches in that series are all near playgrounds. The most interesting find of the day was an old car in the woods in the Ramblewood area. It's in an estate that was turned into public land. For some reason, they removed the house but not the car.

Saturday's trip was more of the same area, in Mount Holly, Chesterfield, and up to East Windsor. Finished off the remainder of the "Stay and Play Awhile" series in Mt. Holly. Also got the "Frogger" series, plus the bonus cache "Squish!"

Sunday's trip was to Upper Merion, Lower/Upper Gwynedd, and Hatfield to get some of the newest caches up that way. The most interesting part of the day though was a stop at the Nor-view Farm in Upper Merion for the Big Chicken. Although a public park, the place is run as a farm with horses, goats, and ponies.
