Cades Cove, Tennessee

Have you ever visited "Cades Cove", Tennessee, within the Great Smoky Mtns.? 
It is an 11 mile loop. Such gorgeous views, no matter sun or rain. It was a bit blue, bits of rain here and there. There were lots of photographers trying to grab a great shot. It was fun to see. Every one was enjoying the views.
If you recall Gatlinburg had been through recent fires, so it was quite sad to see all the destruction. I sure hope that all who lost items will soon find a way to rebuild, etc. Fun to think about they way folks use to travel in the olden days. Hope you are well today and enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Kerr Lake, North Carolina

Hey there!! Thanks for stopping by today, We took a quick getaway over a long weekend in the end of April, 1st day of May to enjoy Kerr Lake Recreation Area County Line Campground. If you know much about that area of southern central of Virginia into North Carolina ...there are several campground put into or near the John H. Kerr Dam & Reservoir ...they had a ton of recent rain so the campground we were going to stay in was not well do all that rain. But this one as you can see had several campsite under water. It is wild to see what water can do. The hubby thought it was funny to be rowing along and see a picnic table under your kayak, hope thing will dry out okay soon enough. 
If you a looking for a great book, check out "The Hale Brothers" by: Kathyrn Andrews... such a great read ...I had a chance to read that series while on this trip. If you are an avid reader like myself, you find the down times to fit in reading. While the hubby is napping, while relaxing and enj…

LIFE update

Sometimes it is just nice to show you what I've been up to. The weekend of March 17-19 ... it was a quiet & calm March weekend. The hubs and I jumped in the car and went to new kayakin' stop here in Virginia ... got a few rowin' moments in before a thunderstorm popped up. Rumbling away, we decided, we best be getting our butt out of the water, ASAP!! Wild how those thunderstorms come out of nowhere!! It was a gorgeous day, only took my Iphone. 


I made a homemade Angel Food cake. Have you ever had to get 12 egg whites? ... separating eggs is not an easy task. Ever needed cake flour before? Take a cup of all purpose flour, take out 2 TBS of that flour, put back in 2 TBS of corn starch. Simple as that!! NEAT, HUH??! Did you know that it take 30 mins, 2 have something become "room temperature"? I really did learn a whole bunch from this homemade baking recipe. SO FUN, not sure I will be  making another angel food cake a while ...but fun all the same. You see an …

Lake Norman State Park, North Carolina

"Lake Norman State Park", North Carolina. When I am putting up this post 3/18/017 to publish on 5/1/2017 ... they are controlled burning there at Lake Norman, I always wonder why they don't that more around different parts of states that have issues with burning problems, seems smart if you know what you are doing, etc. A great state park, very cold while we were there, so pretty. Great for tents. Not so much for folks who need their van, RV or whatever level. We had a nightmare of a time getting ours level. So wild!!
When we go kayaking I always wear these shoes that are great for walking on rocks and other slippery surfaces, I 1st wore them when we went to The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah. Such a great item!! But this day I wore them at Lake Norman I seriously got stuck in the mud while trying to get into my kayak, I hate taking dirt into my kayak 'cause then you have to clean out your kayak.... & draining water from your kayak is not the easiest task ev…

George L. Smith State Park, Georgia

George L. Smith State Park, Georgia. Let me tell ya, this was so fun to kayak, but holding the kayak from moving too much and trying to take pics and an occasional video is so not easy. What a task. So funny!! We met a fun couple who were camp hosting at this park, such great friendly folks. You meet some of the nicest people camping sometimes. so fun!! We kayaked up along the mill. 

Enjoy this vlog from the day. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Three Rivers State Park, Florida

"Three Rivers State Park", Chattahoochee, Florida. When days get rough and a bit stressful I like to think back on days like this when the hubby & I were out kayaking and just finding these moments so lovely. Calm & quiet. Listening to the birds, the waves and just how serene it truly was. Please enjoy! & if you too, have anxiety fulled moments please find a way to take time out and just find your "happy place", go there when you need to get away. ( ;

Take a listen to the vlog from that day. Enjoy!! Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Disney Springs, Florida

"Disney Springs", Orlando, Florida ... use to be called Downton Disney. Not sure when the name did get a change? But that shows ya how often we get there for a visit, Disney is always changing things!! I am curious where the springs are? Any one know? I sort of feel that they have priced themselves out of a lot of folks that are shopping there, me included. Things looked a bit overpriced and too too darn $$$$$$!!! I love Tigger best-est!! Always so happy and bouncy!! He has always been my fave, since a very young child. We always make a point to see the Lego figurines. So creative and fun!! So we just walked around and returned to our campground, which was located at Fort Wilderness one of the Disney World resorts. Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your day! Be Well & Be Blessed!!
