squirreling around at Red Rock Canyon

for you folks who normally shoot pics of critters, i really do say how the heck do you do it? you are really patient, have lots of time, or enjoy the wait? don't make noise, light as a feather, have lots of camouflage or what? 

this cute squirrel was totally into his treat. his early breakfast. he was completely ignoring me. i got my zoom on and BAM we have 4 shots. a bit the same, same angle, etc, i was afraid to move, that he/she would get bored of me staring at him/she and wonder off. but all different in my opinion, considering i am not a critter normal shooter. pics taken late August 2014.

Excellent shots of this devious little rascal! I don't do much of critter photography, at least as of yet.

This little guy is very cute. I don't do a lot of camera critters but most of what I've gotten has been via a long lens and luck. More luck than anything else.

He's a cutie. I love capturing critters. Sometimes it's tricky but patience pays off.

Nice shots. I am in amazement at the birder bloggers who have such great shots. I don't have the patience, nor the skill to do what they do.

I put out bird seed and watch from my window.

I'm thinking many people have super long-angle lenses, right? Is that what it's called when a camera can zoom in from a distance and still have high resolution?

Fine and very cute critter shots of this squirrel. I like how he appears to be in a fine place with which to enjoy his snack.

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.

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  ( :
