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.

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 …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
