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,
Betsy

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

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

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 ( ;

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.

Cove Point Lighthouse
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  ( :
