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.

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.

You do have a keeper! Mine doesn't like to share, but then he can't eat yeast, eggs, dairy. And he does dishes!

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  ( :
