Field, British Columbia, Canada

Some times life just works out a certain way. Case in point. We drove to Field, which is British Columbia, Canada. Went to head back across the train track and got stopped by this super long train. So we got out & got to see this old train station. & the hubby got to be super helpful to an older couple who was having a fuel leak. Too bad you could not go in to the train station & see even more architecture from this cool beauty.

Here is a train video please watch. & I thought that American trains were long but this Canadian train is way way long. ha. ha!! Do folks still do Chinese Fire drills? i think that is what they are called where you jump out of your car, run around the to another door and jump back in and drive off??! Beth ( :


Our trains are nothing like as long as American ones, so they would be even smaller then compared to the Canadian ones!! xx

Hi Beth, that is a long train. The little station is cute too! Best of all is the pretty mountain scene beyond the train.. I was waiting to see your chinese fire drill.

Have a happy day!

I'm not sure I've ever been a part of a Chinese Fire Drill, Beth. It looks like your train gave you an opportunity to get a good picture, but not enough time to explore. People seldom wait on trains anymore, because of all the overpasses....unless you are traveling in a small town like this one.
Those same trains go through NW Washington. They are trying to get more trains - 18 a day instead of 12 a day - and as you can imagine, there are those that are not for that idea - so what they have done is make the trains almost twice as long - making the waits at crossings unbelievable - not to mention the problems with emergency vehicles needing to get past the trains.

Wonderful old depot.

You made great use of the time the long time provided. We have long trains here too as Spokane is an interim link to Seattle.

That is a beautiful train station. I remember doing Chinese fire drills as a teenager in the city I grew up in. The train tracks when through the middle of the city and the freight trains were long so we'd hop out, run around the card and hop back in again. LOL We used to count the cars when we were little kids too. Hugs. Pam

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over was a real COLD adventure but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
