Two Rivers, WI

Two Rivers, WI Travel Guide!

Wisconsin finally got the memo that it is spring so Ian and celebrated with a road trip to Two Rivers. We started off the day by taking a tour at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. The graphic design nerd in me totally geeked out! I discovered they host letterpress workshops and I’m tempted to drag Ian along to one this summer!

After our tour I was craving something to eat so we ordered subs, pulled a blanket out of our car, and had a mini picnic overlooking Lake Michigan. There is a beautiful bike path that wraps around the lake so it’s easy to walk to a spot with a great view!

Our Two Rivers day trip ended with a hike at Point Beach Forest State Forest. It was our first visit to the park and we loved strolling along the beach, snapping shots of the lighthouse, and hiking in the woods. Ian’s convinced we need to plan a camping trip this summer so now we are on the hunt to buy a tent.

Cave Point Park

Door County Adventures : Cave Point Park

Ian came down with pneumonia last week, so our days were filled with movies, naps, and eating chicken noodle soup. After a busy day at work this itinerary sounds divine, but around the third day I was itching to get out of the house.

After a week of antibiotics and lots of rest, Ian was finally starting to feel like himself again. To celebrate (and shake off our bout of cabin fever!) we filled a thermos with hot chocolate, bundled up, and drove up to Door County to visit Cave Point Park.

I felt like we were exploring an enchanted forest as we hiked through the moss covered trails. Half way through our hike Ian caught a glimpse of a small hidden beach. We wove our way through the trees to get to the beach and were surprised to find it covered in balancing stones. Of course, Ian was up for the challenge and spent a good half and hour designing his balancing stone structure. I on the other-hand took pride in stacking the smallest structure on the beach!

We ended our day of exploration cuddled underneath a blanket, sipping hot chocolate, and watching the sunset over Lake Michigan. After a week in and out of the doctor’s office, I wanted to hold onto this moment and cherish the fact that we live in a beautiful state where views like this are only a mini road-trip away.

Afternoon at the Antique Store

On days were it is too cold to be outside, but I feel cooped up in the apartment I like to take drive on the country roads. It’s a nice way to get out of the house when you have nowhere to go.

These drives are a small adventure of sorts. We pick a direction and make it up as we go. Sometimes we just take in the countryside and look at the farms nestled into the landscape and other times we stubble upon hidden surprises.

On our latest outing we came across this little antique store. It was a Sunday afternoon, so we were surprised that it was still open! Taking this as a sign, we pulled in the parking lot and had a look around inside.

I love wandering around antique stores looking at old china, dresses and books thinking about the stories they hold. While I will never know the truth I enjoy fantasizing about the owners of each item.

Before we headed home Ian purchased two old beer cans. Now I have the joy of figuring out a way to display his new collection in our tiny apartment. I’m hoping Pinterest can help me out on this one!
