The photo above is proof I am not vain, right? I am most definitely not digging the saggy skin aspect of perimenopause, but have to get used to it so there it is for the whole world to see. Still, we do love the hat and my new glasses, right?
Kewaunee has a tugboat you can tour for the bargain price of $1. Proceeds go to help preserve the Tug Ludington, of course. The tug was constructed for World War II and participated in the D-Day invasion of Normandy by towing ammunition barges across the English Channel.
After the war the tug was transferred to Kewaunee by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and assisted in the construction and maintenance of the many harbors of the Great Lakes.
The iPhone came in handy again when I got a snap of Wayne behind the wheel. Katrina and Cory enjoyed the copy I sent them, and I was ushered into the technology of the new millennium...ta-da!
The City of Kewaunee officially acquired the tug in 1995 from the Federal Surplus Program.
There was a fishing derby in progress while we were there, and as we were leaving the tug and watching the boats going back and forth I suddenly remembered why the town of Kewaunee kept kicking around in my brain. They have a U.S. Post Office mural! The building was right across the street, but I remembered a half hour too late and they were closed for the day. Rats!
So instead we drove around some more and Wayne decided he needed to try to find a Geocache. He crawled around under that tree and walked around that breakwater for a good 20 minutes to no avail. He also tried to find one over by the tug, also without any luck. I wandered around with my camera taking photographs like I do.
We didn't get a close look at Kewaunee's lighthouse pictured with the Evening Primrose, perhaps when I return looking for that elusive Post Office mural someday.
