Yates Mill County Park, North Carolina

"Yates Mill County Park", Raleigh, North Carolina. 174 acres park. Lots of hiking trails. Misty day. What we were guessing was an engagement photos as well as a family portrait time happened while we were visiting this mill. The engagement photo would be in the upper left of photo #1 and lower right of the same photo would be the family portrait. Beth just really wanted a shot of the mill, excuse me folks, could you please move?? Nope, they were totally in their own worlds, not realizing that others wanted shots of the mill without them in them. Some folks are clueless. Sorry, I am not trying to be a booger, but when I take photos, I jump in ... take some shots, rapid fired off real quick and then I get the heck out way. Other people these days just don't seem that kind? Why is that??!! 

Thank you kindly for stopping by, I appreciate you time. Have a great day!  Beth ( ;

Believe me, I've photoshopped my fair share of people out of pictures because they just wouldn't move. Sure is a cool mill though.

This place looks like a great place to spend some time. I adore old buildings and old mill houses, in particular. Your pictures are beautiful. The one with the reflection of the mill in the pond is wonderful and the water is as smooth as a mirror! I haven't done much blogging lately and I'm glad I caught this great post today!

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…
