Motts Run Reservoir

Hey There!! Motts Run Reservoir, Fredericksburg, Virginia, I love it after a time of too too much humidity you will have days where the weather is just awesome!!! Not hot or cold. Just right. Makes you wish that this kind of weather would and could last for days and days. Perfect moments for a kayaking trip. We did pack a lunch and enjoyed a watery lunch, you know sitting in our kayaks eating a bite. Great exercise. Hope ya enjoy!! Take Care. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Virginia Creeper Trail

HEY THERE! Hope you are well today. Let's enjoy views from our biking trip on the Virginia Creeper Trail. There are numerous spots to jump off your bike take a moment to breathe, time for a lunch break, take some pics, jump in the water or smell some wildflowers. This time there were so many little kids riding with their parents, usually it is teens and adults. Fun to see so many folks enjoying the day. The water was so chilly, the hubby was brave enough to take a walk through, NOT ME!

If you will notice I had to stop by the 40 sign ...each year for some reason I started the tradition to stand by the birthday number (how I came up with it? I have no clue, but little kids do, so why shouldn't we enjoy our new age, I am trying to deal with it, growing use to the BIG 40, I am working on it!!! I know it is not that big of an age ...but I am digesting lots over it all. LOL!) ...the last time I did this was way about in my 38th year. I sadly did make it to this state park for my 39…

Grayson Highlands SP

HEY THERE, friends thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are well. I wanna share with you my recent trip to Grayson Highlands SP.  We were there June 15 - 17, 2018. It was a quick weekend trip. We stop by the Virginia Creeper Trail and just enjoyed the day. We always make a point to go during this time of the year to get away from the heat and humidity. The temps there at Grayson are so much nicer and a bit cooler. I've lost count of how many times we have visited this SP? 5 or 6 times? Such a gorgeous area of Virginia. ENJOY!! Check out these past posts from different trips to Grayson Highland State Park, Virginia: "Oct 31, 2016", "Sept. 17, 2015" & "Sept 14, 2015" (those dates are when I did post not when were did visit, just so you know. Maybe it will make you wanna make a planned trip, you will so love every second, making lots of memories, be sure to take lots of pictures!!). Have a great day. See next time. Be Well & Be Blessed!!!

Giant City State Park, Illinois

The Giant City Lodge, was constructed in 1930's. Check out their water tower, that will stretch your leg muscles to places you might have realize it will or could stretch??!!? NO KIDDING!!! Giant City State Park, 235 Giant City Road, Makanda, Illinois (618) 457-4836. It was a gorgeous day for a hike, so we took a nice hike around this trail. I was trying to recall the length ...just nice one. Just right. Can you see me? A balancing rock there, makes you wonder how long ago it was settled in like that? Will it ever move or what???!?!?!? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Dungeons and Dragons Park, Illinois

We did try to get your camper friends to go with us on a trip a bit farther away from Gunn Creek Campground, but they didn't I feel understand the love for art and just feeling like a kid. Adults can always be a kid ...you never will lose your kid like self ...if you do things you love. We are not players of Dungeons and Dragons, BUT WE LOVE ART. Art of all sorts, when you are creative you just show your passion... a passion for so so so many things ... art of cars, people, jewelry, camping, whatever ... ART is ART. Never allow any one to tell you that what you are doing is not art.

Franklin County 1910's Garage Museum

This was a not to far location to see from our Gunn Creek Campground, one of the fellow campers was having a birthday so we stopped into Joe's Pizza & Pasta, 117 E. Main St. Benton, IL 62812, Phone: (618) 438-0563. I wish, wish, WISH I had taken a picture or 2 of the pizzas we did have ... each couple got a different pizza and that gave us all a chance to try so many of their amazing PIZZAS. They were DELICIOUS!!! greek, hawaiian, taco, stuffed, veggie, SO MANY OPTIONS, you will love it promise!!!
So some one recommended going to see this museum. It is a FREE museum, however they would appreciate a donation. I believe one of the campers had seen a bit about it in the travel brochure.
