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.

Hello, pretty shots from your kayak! I would be turning over and end up in the water with my camera. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

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.

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…
