Michigan - Ohio Shoreline Adventure

What a glorious adventure! TaGeez and I have conflicting days off. And, with Winter fast approaching, we decided we needed to schedule this Monday off and take a last road trip for 2013. After much discussion, we decided to head South from the Metro-Detroit area and grab some goodies in Southern Michigan and Northeast Ohio. Perfect choice!

The weather cooperated beautifully (warm enough for light coats with a light breeze), and we were able to take dozens of stunning photos along the shared shoreline. The skies over the water were so blue and the Fall change of colors in Ohio was breathtaking. So many red and yellow leaves!

Highlights on this trip were the Lake Erie Webcam, driving over Sandusky Bay, knocking another cache off our Jasmer grid, exploring the pier at Port Clinton, the Big Bird Virtual, and grabbing Michigan's 5th oldest cache (Power Lady).

We also enjoyed several P&G placed by Ohio cachers (thank you!), exploring some older cemeteries (and almost getting sucked into one), groping two pieces of artillery, seeing a big red horse, seeing my first nuclear power plant up close, and appreciating Michigan's "low point".

It really was a grand way to spend a Monday playing “hookie” from work!

  1. HA HA! Did you notice that the placement of the bush behind the dinosaur gives him a hairy butt?
