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!

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!!

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.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
