Today, I was able to hit a few caches while out with my wife doing some running around in the Awase area. A couple were at some small parks, one was at a Japanese department store and a local was sitting right in front of it, so I couldn't even search for it.
The last one I found was at a large "sports park." There were kelp farmers there, and it was low tide. Apparently, there is a specific type of sea weed here (algae maybe?) that is used to wrap sushi rolls, and another type that is supposed to be very rare. This particular geocache was hidden in the roots of a tree that was covered in thorns. I gave another small blood sample there, and my wife and I were on our way.
It was nice to get out and about again, since the weather has been pretty wet lately. I've also been dealing with a problem with one of my feet. I'll have to hope it gets better soon, since I can't afford to be laid up on one hoof.
