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.

Looks like a lovely spot to kayak and enjoy the day... Even with rain
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,
Betsy

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

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
