Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin







"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

nope can't same the same thing :-)...I grew up with fishermen, spent a lot of time hating that I did, wish I hadn't cuz now I find those reels cool.

my hubby has always been and avid fisherman, he prefers deep sea fishing but not on the big head boats, he likes going with just 3 or 4 people... i have had several talks with him about catch and release fishing and about i know it hurts those big fish.. fish for food if you need it is my motto... not for fun. hubby would love this museum and has caught many of the fish on the wall. i was NOT with him

Just had some sockeye on the dinner plate a few days ago. Probably couldn't have caught it myself if I had tried. :-)

Hi Beth, I have never enjoyed fishing --but my Daddy loved it. He and his buddies would take a weekend trip on occasion to fish. I also have 2 sons who enjoy fishing. My youngest especially (and his wife) love to go fishing... SO--the love for fishing is definitely "in" the family.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm not a fisherman, but this does look like an interesting museum. I can honestly say that I don't have an SD card full of boat motors, but don't ask about waterfalls.

You hit an museum of fishing related items that must have been very exciting to you. A display of reels and especially all those motors would be very interesting to me.

That is an entirely different place to get a view from! Terrific shots.

I'm not into fishing myself- or eating seafood- but I wouldn't mind paying a visit here.

Are you still love fishing. We used to have a motorboat. When I was very little I used to fish off the side of the dock.squid, and a hook on the end of the string. I caught lots of interesting things. The men used to take the fish off for me.

Those outdoor fish are quite interesting and HUGE.
Missy George said…
That was supposed to be..."I used to love fishing"..I dictate my comments and forget to check them sometimes..It's amazing sometimes what they think I say..
Gail Dixon said…
You visit the most interesting places. I have never seen a sockeye salmon before. Very cool!

I have a brother-in-law that would enjoy seeing this place. He lives on the mighty Miramichi River here in NB - one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the world.

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :
