May 13 & 14 Happenings – Part 2

On Day 2, we took a trip down to Findlay (30 minutes south of Bowling Green) for some more geocaching.

This was a fun find behind a local church.  The giveaway was the wire that did not go anywhere.  🙂


This was a pretty spot in Findlay.


…but we did not manage to find the geocache here despite all our looking!


This geocache brought us to the top of a parking ramp!


Another pretty spot in Findlay, at a local park.


The best part about geocaching is that it brings you to beautiful nature spots or historical areas that you wouldn’t otherwise find!

Come back again soon, Mom & Dad.

May 13 & 14 Happenings

On May 13 and 14, my Mom & Dad came down for a little visit.

On Day 1, we drove out the Grand Rapids (Ohio) to do some geo-caching and check out some of the local shops.

We made a detour to this little spot north of Grand Rapids to find a few geocaches.  This spot was a little, old canal off the north side of the Maumee River.




Getting to this geocache was treacherous!  We had to carefully walk across a fallen tree over a little ditch.


Grand Rapids is an old canal town, south of the Maumee River.  The town has made a wonderful little park area alongside the canal (you can see the canal in the background behind my dad).


And here is a view of the Maumee River!




This is the inside of a used bookshop.


The little shops in Grand Rapids have lots of character!


Stay tuned for our adventures on Day 2 tomorrow.
