Write Up:
We met up at the end of Padonia Road in Cockeysville, Maryland at 8 PM. Our small group of attendees walked two miles on the sidewalks towards the Mars Supermarket and strip mall. Along the way, we grabbed some photos of Rebecca posing with a Halloween lawn ornament while the family was made for a good laugh.

When we reached Mars, we took a group photo in front of the store, telling the shopping cart man that we were on a photo scavenger hunt so he wouldn’t think we’re weird or anything.

After touching Mars, we went to the other end of the strip mall to grab a drink and bite at Padonia Station. They were having a big Halloween party that night and all the wait staff was dressed up, along with many patrons. We saw many costumes we had to do a double-take on.

After the short break, we walked back to the cars. And, the adventure to Mars was over…

‘Til next year.
