Helmcken Falls, Canada



Helmcken Falls, this waterfall is amazing. If you wish for measurements, this one is 121 meters (that is a lot of meter sticks?? right??!) & Niagara Falls (are they measuring the US side or the Canadian side?? hey, seriously??!) is 52 meters. Does that mean anything to you math folks?

Of all the waterfalls within this area this one is a must see. If you have just a few moments to spare ...this one beats them all. You can see the steam, fog & mist ...the power is amazing!!! Can you imagine it in the snow? They had pics of it online & on a billboard at the waterfall site, I don't think Canada is some where to be when it snow? But I am not sure??! Listen to that video below. You will be amazed!! Promise!



Check out the video. Must see!! Beth ( :

Beth, so beautiful and lovely sound. We will be in Maine in July/August, so will probably venture into Canada, but haven't really looked at the possibilities as yet.
Beautiful! The sound of rushing water is simply amazing... as long as it stays where it should. I enjoyed the video.

Hi Beth, This is gorgeous and I love the sound. I visited Niagra Falls when I was 12. You are fortunate to see all these beautiful spots and I appreciate you sharing with us. We had visitors from Canada a few weeks ago and I do not envy their winter months at all!

Seems like if they were measuring the American Falls they would use feet or yards. Your images are great to see!

I WAS amazed. Beautiful.
Having just returned from Niagara Fall I enjoyed viewing your posts of your visits to falls. They each are awesome in their own way. Thanks for sharing the photos.

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 ...it 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 ...you 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 ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun 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 ( :
