Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania

If you know anything about my hubby I would be that wherever we go we ALWAYS, always get a water front campsite. If you don't have water, a water view, it will be a mountain view, some kind of view that is ultra great view to him. Well, he booked this campsite at "Ricketts Glen State Park, PA" on the thought that there would be water. WHERE IS THE WATER? Guess what Ricketts Glen was doing well we had our over night visit? They waited just when we were there to work on their old dam. lucky us? huh? yep. boo hoo. sad face. ; ( maybe when you make your visit there the water will be back. maybe??! Do you love a water view too? Check out the video below. Not sure what the hubby was saying, I do try to tell him I am taping but sometimes he is too quick to pass on the message. Beth ( ;

Even with the water down, it's a pretty view.
It is lovely to have a watery view isn't it. xx

Still pretty,but too bad you didn't get the water view you had hoped for.

Awwww that is disappointing ......I adore the ocean and living so close to the shore. Also, we live on a river so I see the water view, every single day and I love it!!

This happened to us one year when we went to Douthat for a weekend. The lake was empty and all mud. Of course I had to go mucking out in it and fell flat on my face. I was the laughing stock of the family. Kiddo...I would be glad to knit you a bobble hat. It would be hilarious. I have made myself a couple of them and love to wear them. They are always talking pieces. Send me the circumference of your head.

We were in Pennsylvania last weekend. Passed over a lake on US 40 where the water level was very low. I think this is the time of year that is good for draining a lake because most of the vacationers have gone home.

Too bad about them working on the dam...I do like water views. They make great sunrise/sunset scenes.

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.

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  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
