Skidmore Reservoir, Virginia

On gorgeous clear day 6/29/2015, the hubby & I went to "Skidmore Reservoir, Virginia" to kayak & to see if the claim on this website was true... "If you would like to fish in one of the most beautiful places in the Commonwealth, then Skidmore Reservoir is the place for you."

Please take a listen to this vlog. We did talk to a local who said this reservoir is normally very quiet and no one around. For some reason this day there was a big girl group there, at least 20 or more. Guess we will have to get back there when it is more calm. it's 118 acres. We are not fisher-folks, but we love a gorgeous lake, reservoir or any kind of body of water. So fun!! What do you think, is this reservoir living up to the claim?  Beth ( :


It's gorgeous there! I thought it looked peaceful, but I had the speaker turned off. :-)

Looks just wonderful. Was it a large group of girls, or a group of large girls? Perhaps it was a hen party?!

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…
