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.

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

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.
