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 ( ;

Nice! I love kayaking. In fact, our kayak is sitting in our front yard right now. Not doing us much good there though... Happy July 4th to you!

Being on the water looks so relaxing,but since I have a fear of water that is deeper than my knees,I don't think I would be very relaxed.

Pretty area. The water looks a little choppy for such a pretty day. Thanks for sharing. Happy fourth!

Wonderful views from the kayak! Hope you have a great 4th of July!
We are in a drought in SE Ontario. It's so sad. We've been frugal with water. I love your canoeing, though. I hurt my thumb and cannot for aa few days!

Hey,Beth! Are you trying to reach me via email? Just making sure your account wasn't hijacked. Just send an email to my blog account telling me it is really you and I would be happy to answer. Had some strange emails lately, so I need to verify. Thanks.
We so need rain. SOme over the past 24 hours, but our lakes are shallow.
Happy 4th to you!

I love your sun glasses, and your watery travels!!!

Lake Erie State Park, Brocton, NY. 14716 (716)792-9214, this state park had a gorgeous view of the water, such a gorgeous view. great for sunsets. they had recently had a lot of rain, so you could not ride or walk all of the grassy areas do to lots of standing water. it was a state park that we used as a central location to run to several spots, we stayed 2 evenings. that sunset show there was a view we did enjoy from the back of our campsite, so awesome to sit in your chair, enjoy the birds, critters, and the view. wowza was it awesome!!! i think that is the one i did use on my FB page too??! yes, i did, just checked. have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

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 ( :

Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise! Tell all my loved ones hi, I miss them. Lately, I have been really miss my Grandma, and my Great Aunt. Hope they are treating u good??! Life is good. Bring Spri…
