Pike River Rendezvous

Pike River Rendezvous on Simmons Island in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Yesterday I went to Simmons Island here in Kenosha.  I went to the Pike River Rendezvous.  It is a historic reenactment of life in the late 1700s and early 1800s in this area.  It is open and free to the public.  The reenactors like to share their stories, history, goods, and services.  There was a battle with pirates on the shores of Lake Michigan.

I’d like to thank all the participants that were nice enough to allow me to photograph them and their things.  So many were gracious to allow it and look forward to seeing themselves there.  If you stop by please say hi.  I’m sorry but I lost my notes on who is who.  I would so like to give you credit for being such a gracious host/hostess.

Oh one nice thing for me is I got to drive the Mustang.  Mike had taken the car to the airport to go on his long weekend of active duty.  Aaron had taken the truck to go to work so I got to take the lady out for a drive.  I didn’t put the top down because there was a prediction of storms rolling in about 11am or so. Don’t worry honey I was careful and even parallel parked her just fine.
