Elkhorn Lake, Virginia






Hey there!! On 7/6/2015 we got to go to this 54 acre lake, Elkhorn Lake, Virginia. Not sure how it go it's name, there are no elk or horns? I'm not sure if the elk use to roam these lands or???! This lake is part of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. The whole drive to this lake the skies were threatening the chance of rain, The hubby said it was suppose to be more southern storm, but those skies were wild, as we were loading up the kayaks to leave the skies opened & it poured down. 


Please take a listen to the vlog of that day!! Enjoy!!! Beth ( :

I love the sound of the breeze/wind and when I first saw the tip of your canoe I thought'd already been to Elkhorn Lake, silly me. Peaceful video...

Great shots. I love the views from on the water.
It is fun trying to work out why some places are named isn't it! Very beautiful whatever it is called. xx

I have enjoyed your blog for a few years now. Took a break from the computer this summer and am so glad to see you're still blogging now that it's time to visit again! My cousin, whom I adore, lives in south central VA, with her family. She and her husband have started kayaking, hiking and biking. Their goal is to hit every state park in VA. I'm going to recommend your blog to her. I get excited seeing where you've been and what she has to look forward to. Great photos.

Never been to nor heard of Elkhorn Lake, Virginia. Looks like a beautiful lake. Hope you finally did get to kayak...

Not much fall color here in our part of TN yet--but we have had quite a bit of rain lately... I'm ready for some colder weather AND sunshine... ha

Hugs,

Fine views of this great looking place. I'm glad you were loading when the rain came to minimize how wet you got. :-)

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 ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

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. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!



Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
