Lake Orange, Virginia






"Lake Orange", Orange, Virginia, we enjoy a day on the waters, June 6th, 2016. It was so humid. Though we had a ball exploring those waters. You should see my tan, I call it my "kayaking tan". The dragonfly was hanging out on my kayak string, he was super quick, there and gone in a blink of the eye. Notice the circle in the 2nd to the last shot, that is a bird, I am not sure you realize how difficult it is to hold a kayak steady and take pics ... so I got him in 1 shot & gone the next. What a gorgeous day it was!! 


Take a look at the vlog from that day. Hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by. Take Care. Beth ( :

I love dragonflies. We had one in the house the other night - I have no idea where it came from.

Wow, I would imagine it would be so difficult to be steady for photos or anything else for that matter, in a kayak. Oh boy, what fun you are having.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

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 …
