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!

It does look like a good place to be out on the water.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
