Lake Moomaw, Covington, Virginia





Real Quick Note: Not sure how 2 posts got scheduled last week, but thanks to all who commented on both, we were camping at Maryland state park, no internet service, meaning now way to change it until we got home on Tuesday last week. We were eating by mosquitoes now stop. Outdoors, in the restrooms, going to the trash, couldn't go kayaking, could even take a bike ride... but we dealt with it and did take 2 long bike rides and did enjoy a few sights. How do folks deal with that a normal basics? WILD TIMES!!! I did mean to post it today... so Let's Get Started!! Have a super fabulous week!! ( ;











"Lake Moomaw", Bolar Mtn., Covington, Virginia. This was our 2nd visit to Lake Moomaw, did you miss our 1st visit? "See here". We were there June 19-21, for a quick long weekend trip. It was such great weather, nice to just get away, a chance to have no internet or phone call. Loved that. 

As you can see I had a bit of a time narrowing down the pics. it was just a gorgeous time we had there. We took our kayaks & the hubby's new toy a 2014 Livingston Model LV9, Johnson 8 horse, 2 stroke motor. It is a tiny boat, we both can lift it together to fit in the back of our F150 truck. It is fun to get around in it, folks look at us like what??! We are the smallest boat around. I prefer the kayak, 'cause I can go where I wanna go. 

You can see our campsite in several pics. There are several campgrounds within Bolar Mtn./Lake Moomaw area to pick from ...you just can not go wrong. This visit we stayed in campground #1. Last visit we were in campground #2. So peaceful and a chance to just be one with the outside world. If you will take a listen to the vlog below you will hear all sorts of birds, the boat at a part in there as well. Such a fun trip.


Check out my vlog from the day. Do enjoy!!! Thanks, for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( :

Hello Beth, I tend to stay away from places with water when the skeeters are bad. I love your lake photos, very pretty. The little boat is cute. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Kayaking is always fun! So sorry to hear about the mosquitoes in Maryland though! Your story reminds me of camping at McClellan Lake in Texas on our 2010 trip. Most of our stops were so wonderful, but that place had mosquitoes everywhere! They buzzed in through our screens, and we suffered for days. Additionally our campsite neighbors had to play loud music and ride their 4-wheelers while we tried to go to sleep. I guess it's good to have a bad stop every once in a while on trips, to help us appreciate the good stops more! Anyway hope your next trip goes a lot better, and has fewer mosquitoes!

What a beautiful spot to camp. Peaceful indeed.
That isn't too far from us - we should make an effort to visit there.

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.

Cove Point Lighthouse
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  ( :
