view from the Prince of Wales Hotel, Canada




the view is amazing. the winds are wild and crazy. you have to be firm footed or you will surely blow away. it is wild. the windows were blowing like crazy through our lunch. 

the folks we chatted with said the hotel is rumored to be haunted. we never saw any clues to that fact, but it is a great story to hear. ghosts and all.

hope you can see the arrow in the 3 shot, that is about where the campground is, a nice little hike. a great area for walking, biking and getting around with the greatest of ease.



this is a video from the front of the hotel, to show you the wind and the wild noises it did make. so windy. enjoy!! pics taken on our trip in late August 2014. Beth ( :

Is it windy all the time, or just in certain seasons? Looks like a great place to visit. Hope those windows are reinforced!

What a beautiful setting for a hotel. I know there's a ghost story attached to another one of those grand hotels in the Canadian Rockies.

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  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
