Douthat State Park, Millboro, Virginia





On 6/28/2015 the hubby & I took a drive to "Douthat State Park", which is in Millboro, Virginia. Such a cool state park. It was an overcast kind of day. Very windy. So fun. I do wish to introduce to you "Violet" our newest Serta sheep, #60. She has violet eyes & violet ribbon around her neck. So cute. 10 total sheep. We have 3 girls & 7 boys. The girls are still outnumbered. Nuts!!! 


Please take a listen to this vlog of the day on the windy 50 acre lake. All sorts of hiking, biking, camping & water fun is to be had at this state park. Beth ( :

Now, Beth...I do not know if I ever told you, but Buddy and I actually own Douthat State Park in our imaginations. We go there all the time and have post so many family reunion and birthday gatherings from there thru the years. It is 20 minutes from the house. Wish I had known you were going to be there. You could have stopped by the house. If you go back, be sure to let me know. I have been following you on FB. You’re staying quite busy. We are going to have to get together again before too long. Loved your pictures....were you in the kayak??? Bud and have never been ON the lake. When they drained it several hers ago to clean it, we all did go out trying to walk in the mud. Of course, I fell flat on my face and was covered from head to toe in mud. They wouldn’t let me back in the car. I had to walk back to the cabin. That was quite the adventure.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
