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.

The mountains are amazingly beautiful... and I remember times when I was a kid, counting trains go by.

That's an awesome backdrop for the train!

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

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…
