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!

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 ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care.
