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 ( :

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

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 ...
