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.

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 ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!



Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
