Another Kind of Treasure Hunt, continued

Start with Part 1 of this post here.

The real joy to be found in geocaching, is happening upon places you'd never otherwise know existed. Equipped with our trustee iPhones, Kenny and I decided to explore some of the smaller towns around the Madison area on Memorial Day. Places where you wouldn't typically think there would be anything "to do."
Here are some of the magical places / things we came across:

Lovely lakes and bridges-
Local produce market-
A yummy chocolate malt-
 A brewery that we didn't realize was so close to home-
Black Beauty-
Some of our favorite places to geocache are cemeteries. Kinda creepy and strangely beautiful. The caches are never placed on or around graves, so nothing is ever disturbed. 

And then this- well this was just epic. A cache popped up on the GPS called "Cream Puffs as Big as Your Head". Well we didn't end up finding the cache (we did find 9 out of 12 that day) but we DID find said cream puffs.
Listen, that cream puff was sold at a gas station of all places...the price? $2.75!!!
And we literally would have never come across any of this had it not been for this little "game" !!
