Minnehaha Falls Park, Minneapolis, Minnesota



i have heard of Minnehaha Falls Park, for years, and after laughing at the name, i finally got the chance to see it in person. look at that water fall ... so powerful. it was so loud.

there is a gorgeous park there surrounding the waterfall. you might even miss the waterfall, if you are not from the area. we did ask a lady are we headed in the right direction? yep, a bit farther.

lots of lovely flowers & views. we were on a time schedule we had paid for parking so only like a few moments before our time ran out. so it was a quick run to the fall & back to the vehicle. when you are on a schedule you do what you gotta do. Beth ( :

looks beautiful!
I've heard of the name but didn't know there was a real place to go with it. Just thought it was some sort of joke.

That is an impressive amount of water in the water fall. Excellent shot of it.

Okay, putting it on my bucket list for the next trip North. We have friends who summer in Minnesota, and other friends who live there.

Dear Friend, Just stopping by to say HI. Hope you are having a good December so far. This will be a very different kind of Christmas for George and me this year. But—all in all, we are both enjoying being together and sharing our love with each other. What more can we ask for!!!!

Other than a post today, I won't be blogging much until I start feeling better and get this knee/leg taken care of... I will try to at least read your posts (even if I don't comment)... I will however be posting off and on on Facebook (since it's so simple) if you want to check there when possible.

Did you know that there is a Minnehaha Falls in GEORGIA??? I've seen it!!!! Crazy, huh?
Hugs,
Betsy

What a beautiful waterfall! I've heard of it before, and I might have been there- we passed through Minnesota on one of our trips out west when I was a child.

That is a beautiful waterfall and I'm glad you got to see it!
To answer your question about Stormy, yep, she was rescued one stormy night by my hubby and he brought her home. So we just decided to call her Stormy! :)
So here you are, in my neck of the woods again! Minnehaha Falls is pretty, isn't it. Minnesota and Wisconsin are both beautiful, especially in the summertime with our combined number of lakes being somewhat over 25,000. I guess you could say we're the Lake District of the United States (Well, except for the Great Lakes, of course). Have a lovely Tuesday.

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  ( :
