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!!!

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball.

LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.
