Kenosha Lighthouse

Last week we had to take a drive up to Kenosha, Wisconsin to look at a possible remodeling job.  And you know me, the first question I always ask is "Can we stop and grab a few geocaches?"


I always like it when our geocaching adventures are somehow tied into history, so the Kenosha Lighthouse fit the bill. 



First we walked around the lighthouse and then Louie made quick work of finding the geocache. 





I always enjoy walking around harbors and checking out the boats and docks....






The day we were up there it was extremely cold and windy.  We walked along the shoreline and found another cache hidden among the rocks.  But believe me, we didn't linger there long!









We were actually in this same area a year and a half ago when I did a blog post on the Kenosha Civil War Museum.  You may be interested in going back and checking out that post to see the difference in how we were dressed in August versus January.  I definitely prefer the temperatures in August!

  5. Well, there aren't many places I go where a geocache isn't hidden. Now, if I can find them, that's a different story. LOL! Hugs.
