Carvins Cove Natural Reserve, Roanoke, Virginia

"Carvins Cove Natural Reserve, Roanoke, Virginia". It was a pretty windy day. overcast, a bit of sun, with thundering in the far off-ness. Thankfully it never showed up to rush us off. I feel my muscles aching just thinking about this trip. It was some awesome exercise. We took this trip on Monday June 8th, the hubby's day off. Such fun!! Hope you had a blast going with us. 

Please check out this vlog of the kayakin' trip. Have a great day!!! Beth ( :

Beth, we saw lots of Kayaks in the water when we were in Maine, and it looks like a really peaceful way to get around. Beautiful shots in your video.

Nice shots - I hope to get some canoe trips in this summer - although we have a bit less water than you seem to have!!

Hi Beth! I have not visited in a while so just looked at the photos in your last posts and enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery, flowers, and this amazing ruts from the wagons traveling west in the past. What a journey they must have had!! I hope you are having a great summer. My August has been very busy and full of fun and travel so I've been missing visiting the blogs. Take care! 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…
