not all kayaks are alike???!

i never realized how different kayaks can be??! you have seen pics of our kayaks. these you see seem to sit more on top of the water, they are more different to steer, & not as smooth. we didn't bring our own paddles so that was a real differences too. who knew it could be so different. we did bring our own life jackets and hats.

just so you know for future reference NOT ALL KAYAKS are equal. 

i think the hubby liked it. me - major learning curve. i did the best i could. & considering all the great pics i took, in my most humble opinion, it could have gone a whole lot worse. ha. ha!!! pics taken Sept. 28th, 2014. Beth ( :

Gorgeous pictures, Beth. You two are so lucky to visit these beautiful places and thanks for sharing with us!
I'm still rooting for equal rights for kayaks.
Yes, you certainly got beautiful pictures!

I would be hanging on for dear life, not taking pictures. Good job!

if you didn't capsize, i'd say you did well. :)
I have never been in a kayak. Did have a canoe at one time.

I could imagine how hard it would be get the kayaks to do your bidding. Nice shots regardless!
Sandra said…
i love that last shot of the water.. since i don't fly or float, the kayak will be just to look at and they are pretty

I'd rather use a canoe!

Beautiful shots!

We just purchase a new pair of Kayaks that have yet to be tried out. I am indeed bit afraid of the learning curve next season.
Sure will be fun though...maybe you'll paddle right on by me on one of these beautiful Virginia rivers.

You must have done great, kayaking and taking photos.. I have not tried kayaking! Wishing you a happy week!
George said…
I hadn't thought about the different kinds of kayaks. I would say you did a great job of getting photos while paddling your kayak.

Happy Kayaking!!!! I'm sure that you and hubby have a great time. I don't know much about the different types of Kayaks ---but I do know that some people like to kayak on smooth water --and others like the rough water...

Happy Thanksgiving. Great photos, Beth.

You do have fun adventures. If and I repeat "if" I were to try kayaking it would be on a calm lake and for sure I'd be wearing a life jacket since I can't swim.

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.

Cove Point Lighthouse
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  ( :
