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!
Debbie said…
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!

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?

Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, GA

"Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, GA", this was our 1st visit. Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!

Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
