Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia




These are the views we had while kayaking at "Hungry Mother State Park", Marion, Virginia. We were there Sept 2016, so the light was going into the later evening, it was breezing cold ...not the easiest kayaking experience ... if we would have had more water, we might have had the ability to row from our campsite ... but the waters were way low ... so we had to sneak in at a higher water location ... the waters were / maybe I should say the winds were pushing against us, so we didn't go to far from our camping spot.

You may ask why the name here is what I got when googling it "Hungry Mother State Park in Virginia is named after Hungry Mother Creek. The creek was supposedly listed on a 1774 land survey as "Hungers Mother" creek. The Name "Hungry Mother" was not officially attached to it until 1929." I was not sure, so that is why I decided I better look it up to see, I was curious too.


Here is a short vlog from that evening. Enjoy!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. See you again real soon. Be Well Be Blessed. Beth ( :

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.
