Shipwreck Tours

Image
  We took  "Glass Bottom Shipwreck Tours" . "trip takes about 2 hours, visiting 2 different shipwreck sites, rock cliffs... historic lighthouse, and ...Grand Island & Munising Bay".   Now for picture taking purposes it is so tough to get the pictures of the shipwreck pieces to show up??? You are looking through the bottom of the glass boat, now it is great to see, but not clear at all in the photos. Sadly, had to delete them all, nothing was clear or even made you know what you were looking at??! Fuzzy. You just have to be there and enjoy. So cool. Glad we got the chance. WAY FUN!! I know I've told ya that my hubby and I love Michigan ...no matter what section. I went online to get the bit about Michigan but couldn't find it, now if you didn't realize all or maybe I should say most folks who are from Michigan, will use their hand to say where to go, visit, and see where they live. We can't do that with Virginia. Makes me always smile. I just did

KIDDING, but I'm seriously that is never our thought to use someone's photo in our website without their permission but what are you gonna do?? I mean I've gone to the put of not using the photo 'cause I don't wanna or because (can I take a moment to say that I think it is hilarious when google "spell check really doesn't enjoy me using "gotta" (got to), "gonna" (going to) or "wanna" (want to),

Crisp Point Light

  Crisp Point Light, Michigan "coast of Lake Superior between Munising and Whitefish Point in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan." The road into this lighthouse, was not in the best condition, but it was well worth it ...GORGEOUS!! So amazing. Look at that view. Me, leaning over touching the water of Lake Superior, Wow WEE, it was cold. No joke, we both had on our heavier coat, the winds were wild that day. Cannot imagine the winds and weather this lighthouse as seen??! We love visiting lighthouses, and this beauty was a FREE visit, yeah, they do ask for a donation. The views were just breathtaking. A real keeper. Are you a fan?? Thanks, for stopping by, Hope you are well today, you take care. Beth ( ;

Beeson Bridge

Image
  Beeson Bridge, Rockville, Indiana - 1906 "Burr Arch construction by Frankfort Construction Co., crossed Roaring Creek near Marshall. Was moved to Billie Creek Village in 1980." I love it when we find covered bridges that have been rescued and moved to another location, to ensure their life, instead of being torn down or completely forgotten. So amazing. I don't recall which month these shots were taken; I know it was 2021. We had a bunch of rallies over the 2021 year, only 1 trailer rally this year in 2022. We have done shorter trips this year. Have you had a chance to get away at all this year? How do you take time to relax?? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. Beth ( ; 

Campbell's Covered Bridge

 Campbell's Covered Bridge, South Carolina "This bridge, built in 1909, is the last extant covered bridge in South Carolina. Built by Charles Irwin (1878-1966), it was named for Alexander Lafayette Campbell (1836-1920), who owned and operated a grist mill here for many years. Measuring 35 feet long and 12 feet wide, it is an excellent example of a four-span Howe truss, featuring diagonal timbers and vertical iron rods." Wow, what a beauty. SO GORGEOUS!! Great fall colors. Taken October 2021. We love finding covered bridges, always so fun. I don't think I've ever seen one I didn't enjoy. Always fun to learn the history. On a sign right there beside this beauty ...had to share with ya. Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ; 

Chimney Rock

  Chimney Rock State Park, NC https://www.chimneyrockpark.com/ Gorgeous area of North Carolina, there in October 2021. Lovely time of the year to be there, crisp cool morning. Just amazing. Breathtaking. I know I took a great shot of the American flag (found it!! Even found a panorama photo, hope you can tell the amount of beauty that was up there, gorgeous area of NC!!) up there on the top, (please do recall that you can always enlarge these photos, by clicking on the 1 you wish to see larger. Just a "heads up" there, SMILES!!) but sadly I cannot find it anywhere, wonder what happened to it??!! I recall sending it to my parents, we always try to stay in touch with them while traveling. You know one of those "epic" photographing moments, nuts!!??!? My legs really hurt after this visit, I wonder how you can make stairs like that for exercising purposes, I mean those work some really good muscles in your legs. LOL!! Thank you for stopping by today, hope you are well.
