Northeast Creek Reservoir, Louisa, Virginia

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. 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 ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might have forgotten a state ... but We are seeing an increase in the $$$ price of gas, are you noticing this?

Just 'cause I have to ... I was sorry to see that Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting a divorce... 'cause in my humble opinion all divorce is sad. I will say ...if it had been me ... I would have always picked Jennifer Aniston. She was my favorite ... any who ... ON TO Northeast Creek Reservoir, Louisa, VA. EnjoY! ( ;

Hey there, if you know anything about my " kayakin' " tan ... it is so much worse than a "trucker tan". I have a tan in so many different levels on my legs and arms it is too funny. So I wore my suntan lotion & thought I got every where ...but the hubby found a bit of a burn on the left back lower shoulder. I'm guessing the life preserver was not covering that area at the time for some silly reason. NUTS!!

It was a noisy day, the funny thing was it was just myself and the hubby there kayakin' around. The herons, woodpeckers, train whistles, & other creatures were making all sorts of noises. Take a listen to the vlog from that day. It was a quick day trip in the middle of July. Gorgeous hot & humid day. Enjoy!! Thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( ;

So wait... you were raking leaves and encountered a copperhead snake? Apparently we have them here, but I have never seen one. I hope not to either. Your trips always sound so fun. According to the news, the gas leak is causing "minimal environmental issues." All lies, I'm betting, considering it's affecting all those states you mentioned. As for Brangelina, not shocked. They're all nuts.

Hello Beth! Your trip with the casita sounds like a lot of fun. I would be scared silly if copperhead was in my yard. We do have them nearby though. I usually see the Garter Snakes and some Black Rat Snakes while walking around my yard. I must not be watching the news I did not hear about the gas leak in Alabama. It seems they can find any reason to raise the gas prices. I think the press has gone on way to much about the Jolie/Pitt divorce, who cares really? Love the photos and video. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

That does look like a good spot to paddle!

Beautiful images of what looks to be a great camping spot!! I really enjoyed kakaying when I went recently and hope to get out in the water one more time, before the weather gets too cold!!

I haven't noticed any increase in gas prices but I don't drive so I am not filling up the tank and don't really notice!!

Angelina and Brad...if it was broken, they should have fixed it. Marriage is about forever!!
The lake is gorgeous. I love the lily pads and the butterflies. Take care!

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

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  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
