Occoneechee State Park, Clarksville, Virginia




We enjoyed a family reunion on Sunday afternoon of 8/2/2015 & took a night in at "Occoneechee State Park", Clarksville, Virginia. most locals call this lake Buggs Island Lake. We have never kayaked at this lake so it was fun to take in the sights. Lots of wakes thanks to all the big monster boats. I will be sharing the eagle we got to see while on this kayaking ride very soon. stay tuned please.


Please enjoy this video of the evening!! ENJOY!!! Beth ( :

And your post previously, New Salem....I remember going through this area in 1968. What a wonderful historical place to spend a day. I received a gift [red ruby glass candy dish] from my hubby that day. Still have it!!!

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 ( ;
