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.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
