Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico




"Carlsbad Caverns" National Park, New Mexico. I have numerous shots, and even some video... But have you ever taken pics or video in a cave? It doesn't turn out as well as you would have hope it would??! =:-(  

I'm from Virginia ...there are tons of caves around here you can visit... & for a whole lot cheaper. I'm an experienced camper/traveler, I know at times in our lives we have give and take, making big decisions as to where spend the extra money & where to save those pennies for the future important trips.  

I did visit the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns... well, I just didn't get the feeling(s) I thought, I would. From the rumors I had heard, I expected the heavens to open, angels to sing, etc. etc. GUESS WHAT, that didn't happen? It was like wow, a hole in the ground??! (I guess I should add to that, if you want to pick a side at the Grand Canyon of must see, go to the North side, less commercial and so must more natural. Quiet. Perfect!!) WHAT, I just headed here, spent money on my National Parks pass for this? Kind of like I spent time shaving my legs for this? Meaning there are far more superior National Parks than the Grand Canyon. (this is just my humble opinion, & you may totally disagree & that is totally ok.) I would say if you are low on money or just don't have the time, save your money and go to a more simple lower priced caverns and don't feel you are missing out. Why not the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive here in Virginia, The mountains you will see here in Virginia... or in Colorado, Bryce Canyon National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone are far more superior. But by all means if you have the time, extra spending doe and want to see all National Parks around the USA please do so. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( :

I'd love seeing the caverns. Caves are relatively rare in these parts.

You know, I don't think I've ever been in a cave. Being that I'm claustrophobic, that's probably why, but even as a kid I don't recall having ever been in one.

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

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 ( ;

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  ( :
