Beaver Creek Lake, Virginia





on Monday October 6th, 2014 the hubby i took a day kayaking trip to "Beaver Creek Lake". such a gorgeous day. a bit windy. we enjoyed a "Crozet Pizza", so delicious. a fun picnic. next time i will be sure to share some pizza pictures... completely forgot that part. ( :

if you recall my "Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park" posts ...we rented 2 kayaks they had available & this was the 1st kayaking trip we had taken since that trip ...our kayaks are totally different. different length, shape, you sit within the kayak totally opposite. if you have not ridden in a kayak or canoe - you really don't understand. but it is like riding in a car on the opposite side, or trying to write with a hand that you don't normally write with. so wild. i just continued to feel something was off or strange? we had our normal paddles again. it was like teaching yourself to row again. wild times. we had a blast. also the weather was changing so (cold front coming in) - the wind was blowing from all directions. usually you can get close to the shore & stay out of the wind. not this time ...no matter where you were the wind was push at you. great for exercise but so different. can i say DIFFERENT one more time?

enjoy your 1st day of December. stay warm. Beth ( :

Refreshing and awakening, kayaking when it's windy and cold can be invigorating but I always enjoy a nice nap afterwards!...:)JP

Well, that post is certainly different! Have never had the pleasure of kayaking, and not sure I'd have the strength for keeping control despite the wind. Glad you are enjoying it.

You find such good lake for kayaking. I can imagine how the varying wind makes it hard to keep going in a given direction.

The water and rock are beautiful. No water here that isn't covered in ice, so your post is a refreshing sight. :-)

I have never been kayaking in my life, and it's actually something that I want to do. That lake looks incredibly peaceful.

(And I remember staying at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park campgrounds growing up. I don't know how they look now, but back then they had a huge Yogi with a picnic (or pic-a-nic if you're talking like Yogi) basket. We used to stand in it for a photo op.

Thanks for the memory!

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
