Lake Louise driving 1A





If you have not noticed I am madly in love with Canada. Let's discuss Beth's loves in life ---here goes ... Virginia is my heart, West Virginia is my lungs it keeps me breathing 'cause it is oh so close to my real home, Montana & Wyoming I have a madly silly love for ever since I 1st traveled there with my parents in the early 90's & finally ... Canada comes into play & knocks every other state in the United States right out of the ball park. Sorry other states you need to start working your magic cause Canada is winning big time!! BIG TIME!!!

I really feel I had no clue how beautiful Canada is. When chatting with folks you will find that folks either really love or hate Canada. My question is how can you hate Canada? we had a rainy trip but refused to let it get us down. the fog is trying to break away. pics taken August 2014. Beth. ( :

We are going to make our first trek into Canada this summer, so looking forward to it.
Gorgeous photos. I really love Canada. My father worked there, and we use to spend summers up there.

I agree that Canada has some world class scenery. The rainy days can't hurt the Canadian pictures.

I agree with you about Canada's beauty although most of what I've seen is in pictures..It's very buggy though..Maybe that's because I was around the water ways..

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  ( :
