Paint Creek State Park, Bainbridge, Ohio




If you are in Bainbridge Ohio... you should check out "Paint Creek State Park". We loved all the walking, the water views & boy did we wish we had our kayaks. There is just not enough room to take them when we go on long trips. Well that is different now that we have a "Casita". At the time when we took this trip we were driving our "Roadtrek 170 Popular", that's sold now. So here's hoping when we are back in Ohio we will go to this state park again for a real water kayakin' experience. Here's hoping. This was the view from our camping spot, right near the water, the hubby's fave. Beth ( :

Hello Berth, pretty views of the park and lake. The Casita looks like a nice way to travel. Did the Roadtrek use a lot of gasoline? Great photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Looks like a wonderful place to camp. Love the sunset (?) in the last photo. We had a great time with our canoes this summer, and a few family members tried out kayaks. For some, it was a pretty exciting experience...way too many capsizes in kayaks and canoes! Fortunately I stayed in a canoe with my brother on every trip, and he has an awesome sense of balance. I am very thankful we never capsized! Swimming on a canoe trip is not my idea of fun!

Our neighbors have a sparkling new camper van and I am jealous!

Love your sunset photo and this does look as if it would be a great place to kayak. We love our kayaks and so enjoy having our cabin on a river to enjoy this! Have a wonderful Christmas Beth

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 ( :
