Kathy's Thoughts

My thoughts on life around me and trying to find the true me.

Family Bonding

on April 7, 2012

This morning when my Husband and I checked Cozi (my favorite app), we noticed that we had a day off!  There was no t-ball game to rush off to, no doctor’s appointments for anyone, you get the idea.  What is one to do with a full day off?

The kids started the day with an Iced Tea stand offering a free brass concert while I toiled away in the garden (that’s a post for another day).  Hubby slept in and then we all went to Five Guys for lunch.

The Hubster has been dying to the go to the “tunnels” while the kids want to go geocaching any chance we get.  Since I had never accompanied the kids to the tunnels before and Hubby had never been geocaching, we decided to compromise and find a geocache near the tunnels.

The Tunnels are also known as the Bluefields Rifle Range. Situated on top of Clausland mountain in the Nyack/Orangeburg, NY area. This base, established in 1910, would replace the old facility located on Long Island. Camp Bluefields, in Blauvelt, Rockland County, was a former New York National Guard Rifle Range used as POW Camp in WWI. The camp’s training facility prepared soldiers for embarkation to Europe. The remains of the Tweed Military Installation are now part of Tamarack County Park. Built some time around World War I the base served as a firing range complete with underground tunnels. The long, concrete tunnels were built to provide safe passage from one rifle range to another.

Anyway, we had a great day hiking and exploring.  The hubby now knows what geocaching is and might just join us the next time we go.  While we were hiking, we got pictures from my friend of her cat’s new kittens!   We called first dibs and will be getting one in the next few weeks.  Look for a post about our new kitten soon.
