Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina

Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina. We love this state park. I have lost count on how many times we have traveled here. Usually at the end of our trips ...heading back to Virginia. Love the sunset & sunrises there. So so amazing!! This time we rode our bikes on the beach. I have never done that before, can check it off my bucket list, kick stands don't work. The sand gets stuck in your tires and brakes. It can be a mess but so fun!! 

The "I <3 You" was a message from the hubby he did with his toes, I figured I would share with you guys. xoxo!! 

Enjoy this vlog from our day. Thanks for stopping by!!! Beth ( :

Whitetail Ridge Campground, Georgia

Whitetail Ridge Campground, West Point Lake, LaGrange Georgia. Amazing how many locations we visit that the water has really done a number on the water front, the erosion is amazing, kind of crazy scary??! We got pretty close to the osprey there too. So cool. Love when that happens, other birds are not so friendly, they fly away so I can't take their picture. : (

Please enjoy the vlog from that day. A quick one, fun all the same. Enjoy!!! Thank you for stopping, have a great day!! Beth ( :

Lake Moomaw, Covington, Virginia

Real Quick Note: Not sure how 2 posts got scheduled last week, but thanks to all who commented on both, we were camping at Maryland state park, no internet service, meaning now way to change it until we got home on Tuesday last week. We were eating by mosquitoes now stop. Outdoors, in the restrooms, going to the trash, couldn't go kayaking, could even take a bike ride... but we dealt with it and did take 2 long bike rides and did enjoy a few sights. How do folks deal with that a normal basics? WILD TIMES!!! I did mean to post it today... so Let's Get Started!! Have a super fabulous week!! ( ;

"Lake Moomaw", Bolar Mtn., Covington, Virginia. This was our 2nd visit to Lake Moomaw, did you miss our 1st visit? "See here". We were there June 19-21, for a quick long weekend trip. It was such great weather, nice to just get away, a chance to have no internet or phone call. Loved that. 

As you can see I had a bit of a time narrowing down the pics. it was just a gorgeous time we had there. We took our kayaks & the hubby's new toy a 2014 Livingston Model LV9, Johnson 8 horse, 2 stroke motor. It is a tiny boat, we both can lift it together to fit in the back of our F150 truck. It is fun to get around in it, folks look at us like what??! We are the smallest boat around. I prefer the kayak, 'cause I can go where I wanna go. 

You can see our campsite in several pics. There are several campgrounds within Bolar Mtn./Lake Moomaw area to pick from just can not go wrong. This visit we stayed in campground #1. Last visit we were in campground #2. So peaceful and a chance to just be one with the outside world. If you will take a listen to the vlog below you will hear all sorts of birds, the boat at a part in there as well. Such a fun trip.

Check out my vlog from the day. Do enjoy!!! Thanks, for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( :

Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico

"Carlsbad Caverns" National Park, New Mexico. I have numerous shots, and even some video... But have you ever taken pics or video in a cave? It doesn't turn out as well as you would have hope it would??! =:-(  

I'm from Virginia ...there are tons of caves around here you can visit... & for a whole lot cheaper. I'm an experienced camper/traveler, I know at times in our lives we have give and take, making big decisions as to where spend the extra money & where to save those pennies for the future important trips.  

I did visit the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns... well, I just didn't get the feeling(s) I thought, I would. From the rumors I had heard, I expected the heavens to open, angels to sing, etc. etc. GUESS WHAT, that didn't happen? It was like wow, a hole in the ground??! (I guess I should add to that, if you want to pick a side at the Grand Canyon of must see, go to the North side, less commercial and so must more natural. Quiet. Perfect!!) WHAT, I just headed here, spent money on my National Parks pass for this? Kind of like I spent time shaving my legs for this? Meaning there are far more superior National Parks than the Grand Canyon. (this is just my humble opinion, & you may totally disagree & that is totally ok.) I would say if you are low on money or just don't have the time, save your money and go to a more simple lower priced caverns and don't feel you are missing out. Why not the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive here in Virginia, The mountains you will see here in Virginia... or in Colorado, Bryce Canyon National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone are far more superior. But by all means if you have the time, extra spending doe and want to see all National Parks around the USA please do so. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( :

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 ( :
