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 ( :

The more reason to go kayaking, right? :-)

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.

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

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  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
