The trick-or-treating, and treasure-seeking, has begun! 45 stops on the map for Admiral Treats and Treasures this year (printable PDF here). Make as many stops as you can – then drop off your map as a drawing entry for one of two “treasure chests” (worth more than $300) at Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights (WSB sponsor; 2326 California SW).

Then once every trick-or-treater had checked in at as many places as they could, the place to turn in their “treasure maps” was Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights, in the background here with Head-to-Toe in the foreground:
The rain stayed away, and that was a treat in itself.
