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?!

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 ( ;

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. 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.
