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 ( :

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin





"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :

i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted to come in and tear down the dam. i sure hope they don't get rid of this mill. it is such a beauty. 

the "White House", he was joking on the real "White House" ...an outhouse, and yes, we did use it. works well. probably even better than your indoor plumbing. ha. ha!!



this old school, right down the road from the mill. we peered into the window to see what was inside. they sure don't make school houses like this any more. such style. very unique.

enjoy your day! & be super thankful for your many blessings and living yet another day!!! Beth ( :

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 ( :
