more from Twin Lakes State Park, Virginia








"Twin Lakes State Park", Green Bay, Virginia. It was a pretty day on 4/13/2015. One wish though - for more of a breeze. When you are working up a sweat on those waters, you need some extra air. The wind/breeze was not with us that day. Kayaking is a great way to see those waters and get some exercise. Can't wait to get out there again. I love kayaking. Completely forgot to take a video though. Next time I will remember, I hope. There were tons of turtles - all sizes - lined up on logs all over the place. Are turtles good to eat? No clue??! We didn't enjoyed the frog legs we had once. They were a special we had while out traveling, never ever again. Nope not for me, not much style. Elk is good. Bison is good. Alligator was different. Whatever else is weird, I am sure one day the hubby & I will try it once. We are odd like that. What you only live once!!!

What's your favorite sport or activity to do to get some exercise? Beth ( :

I have a friend, who is a true Southern gentleman, a Minister AND a Kayak Enthusiast. When he travels anywhere near water - he makes sure to rent a vehicle perfect for taking him to float off - out onto deep water . . . Then, he is a Happy Man.

Walking on the farm or hiking in local parks/trails is the best. Great shots!

Gorgeous scenery! I know people take their camera on kayaks, but it would make me so nervous I wouldn't be able to move. I guess if there's no breeze, that might be okay. Never tried frog or alligator and I'm not sure I could get myself to eat turtle. But hey, you're right, we only live once!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

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 ( :
