The weather was perfect for boating this week. And geocaching! So we packed the boat and made the trip out to Horseshoe Island.
Named (of course) for its distinctive shape, the island is part of Peninsula State Park and is a popular destination for boaters. On a calm day, it's reachable by kayak. There is only one geocache on the island, but geocaching was only part of the fun. The crystal clear water allowed us to spot and easily catch some good-size smallmouth bass, and the water temps made it perfect for swimming in the hot sun.
The shoreline was pretty rocky, so we anchored out just a ways. That was OK though, it made for better fishing and diving off the back of the boat.
