Sandy River Reservoir, Farmville, Virginia





It was just a gorgeous day when we took our kayaks out on 6/13/2016. A nice breeze, nice & sunny. Just so relaxing. "Sandy River Reservoir", Farmville, Virginia

Here is the critter count for the day... 
1.) one seen beaver 
2.) 2 unseen beaver or perhaps they were very huge fish? but they scared the pooh out of me, when they splashed, jumping to get away from me, I was paddling close to the shore line to get be in the shade ...the water was low, it aged me tons, almost peed my pants too!! 
3.) several loons 
4.) several herons.


Thank you for stopping by. Please enjoy this vlog from the day. Beth ( :

Sounds like fun! We've taken our canoes and kayaks out on the Iowa River once this year. The river is low, so sometimes we hit bottom! Plus we had one capsize, which, of course greatly adds to the excitement. I was very glad I stayed dry! Happy kayaking!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.
