Buttermilk Falls State Park, New York


"Buttermilk Falls" State Park, Ithaca, New York. Such a gorgeous area. We had our lunch there. What a view. The waterfall is so loud & right within the city. Such a great hiking spot.

Would you please consider watching the video below to see how powerful this waterfall really is ...we got up close & personal while on the hike. Just so you know New York does not do well in calculating the amount of mileage this hike is actually (or what they share on their signage) ...so be prepared to know it is longer than they say kind of hike. We were sweating & totally wishing we had taken water. We know better for next time. Here in Virginia if we say it is 1/2 mile hike, you will darn sure it is a 1/2 mile hike. Maybe they measure different in other state, no clue??! Beth ( :

There are a few places we've been where the length of the hike has been greatly understated. Kind of frustrating! But what beauty! I love waterfalls.

What a bummer about the hike being longer then you expected but oh my to see that stunning falls would have been worth it. Loved the video.

LOUD . . Really LOUD . . . maybe the counters could not think properly because
this water was So LOUD . . they either mis-communicated or got confused . . . Or, maybe They only walked a half mile . . . so that's what they posted . . .

maybe they meant to write - "Dear Beth, we only managed a half mile, it was so loud, we went home for a glass of water." Love, the sign people.

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 ( ;
