Geocaching, Reids, Food and Ice Cream Adventure!

What a day!!!!bsp;The best part of it was that it was cool in the morning and stayed that way all day!!!
After doing some banking, I picked up Mary Ann so that we could do some geocaching.

Our first stop was HIDDEN PARK.  We started looking for the new cache there but after a couple of minutes, it started to sprinkle, so we ran to the car.

After that, Mary Ann offered to show me two old Roman Catholic cemeteries on Old Niagara Road.  We took an address off of a nearby house so that we can check to see if there are any geocaches hidden there.

Then we went to the new bike/walking trail along the south side of the canal.  It is so new that the new parking lot is still roped off but we were able to park along the road.  We found this one pretty easily after a one third of a mile walk.  It is an ammo can.  I added a few pieces of swag to it.

Then we tried to find parking for Canal Side Quest, but were unsuccessful.  By then we could see REID'S, so we stopped there for lunch and we ran into Lynette, her husband Al and their two grandsons.

Then we headed out towards TOPS at the end of East Avenue and found the small geocache hidden in a huge bush at the west end of the parking area.

And then we decided we HAD to have ice cream so we headed to OLEARS and we had custard cones.

I dropped Mary Ann off and rested for a bit and then met Peggy at FAITH TABERNACLE.  We drove to ECMC to see our Uncle Norman.  We were very happy to find out that he is no longer in ICU but has been moved to an "intermediate" room on the sixth floor.  We had a great visit. Then we headed back towards Lockport, but we stopped in Clarence for the TASTE OF CLARENCE. It was very crowded. I won a very nice bag at one of the booths, which came in handy in order to take home the freebies that were offered. We had supper from the food booths, a half a reuben, cheese/beer soup, and a salad. We decided to have desert at PAULA'S DONUTS since we had to drive right past it to get back to Route 78. However when we got to it, it was closed!!!! I was so disappointed. We stopped at JOHNSONS and had ice cream cones!
