Wednesday May 11, 2016 in (13 geocaches and 2 historical sites, etc.)

After taking advantage of the continental breakfast at the DAYS INN, Leslie and I walked to a few geocaches: Sewards Folly, Bostwick Cache and Freedom Park.  Leslie took this picture of me at a sculpture which I think is dedicated to the creation of movies with sound.

Then we headed to Willard Chapel for a cache. (I think we were on our way to Willard Chapel when I accidentally tried to drive the wrong way on a one way street). This beautiful church has many Tiffany windows, but we were there too early and could not take a tour.  We spent the rest of the morning geocaching with lots of success.  Right around lunch time we began looking for the AUBURN DINER cache, which was a multi.
 We had lunch at the diner (it is truly an old time place)
We took a tour of the Seward Mansion.  It was very impressive, mostly because the furnishings are authentic.   
this is the old basement kitchen where slaves stayed during the Underground Raiload era. 
Our second historical stop was at Harriet Tubmans house.  We were not allowed to take pictures inside, but here is how it looks from the outside.

We had one DNF at a great park.  The name of it is WALKING ON WATER.  We chose the wrong pier to walk out on.  It was getting hot and we were tired, so we chose to NOT walk all the way out on the other pier.

Our last find of the day was at the agriculture museum.

After that I was exhausted so we headed back to our lodging.  I recovered after a half an hour or so and we decided it was time for supper.  Leslie had chosen a restaurant named Pavlo's but when we got there it was closed.  We drove around a bit looking for something interesting but we eventually settled for Chili's across from the mall.  We both had a very expensive bowl of clam chowder, but it was good.

It was a great day!!!!!
