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.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care.
