Salt Creek Recreation Area, Washington




This is a great park, lots of walking & even a WWII bunker. I would show you pics of the bunker but they are so dark, the pics just didn't turn out well, so I will show you shots from around the park. 


We met some many friendly folks. A couple from Alabama originally who wanted to be sure of all the sights we were going to see & ones we should not miss. A couple from Kentucky who had flown out to see Washington & couldn't not believe we had driven the whole out.


"red skies at night sailors delight, red skies in the morn sailors be morn." I am sure you know that saying. I have heard it for years. I did wake up early to check different colors. it's the simple things that will get me out of bed early. so well worth it for sure. ( :


Please check out this vlog from the evening, I am still drooling over all these amazing views. Washington you are so so gorgeous. You go girl!!! Show off, I am so watching. Beth ( :

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…
