The name of the restaurant sounds awesome, so I'm sure the food was good as well. Beautiful pictures to share this the cloud reflection in the lake.

This lake is one of my favorites in the national parks for Canada. The lunch looks fabulous.

Moraine Lake is another part of the Rockies that I love. Gorgeous captures.

WE alway share if the other wants to sample, too. Everything here looks so delicious...and I just ate. But I would eat again if I had these items.

Beautiful photos, Elizabeth! Sometimes my husband and I buy different dishes so we can try out both. We especially like doing this when we are attending Disney World's Food and Wine Festival, since they have samples of cuisines from places around the world. We always have a good time sampling each one. I have kept my husband for 46 years and yours sounds like a keeper too!

I watched the green nail polish video, but I have to admit I am not much for green fingernails except at Christmas and Saint Patty's Day.

Sounds like a keeper. Lake Louise is a beautiful area. I used to live not far this area years ago. Must be a new restaurant. Nice blog you have and thanks for stopping by my blog today. :-))

seems to me the both of you chose well . . (you and your husband) . . that place looks like a dream . . at first i thought you actually had "cilantro" for lunch . . and i wondered if we like cilantro - i couldn't imagine . . was it in soup. or salad or . . ??? BUT, knowing it was the name of the restaurant, and that you and your sweetie shared . . yeppers . . like a very nice dream

Sounds like you and your hubby enjoy being together like George and I do. It's neat that you are traveling as much as you are --as young as you are... I missed out when I was your age ---raising kids and making ends meet.... But--that was my choice at the time.

Lake Louise is gorgeous and your lunch looked great.

These photos are magnificent. Looks like a delicious lunch and good for you, choosing your fave! ME
You do have a keeper! Mine doesn't like to share, but then he can't eat yeast, eggs, dairy. And he does dishes!

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

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…
