Lake Norman State Park, North Carolina





"Lake Norman State Park", North Carolina. When I am putting up this post 3/18/017 to publish on 5/1/2017 ... they are controlled burning there at Lake Norman, I always wonder why they don't that more around different parts of states that have issues with burning problems, seems smart if you know what you are doing, etc. A great state park, very cold while we were there, so pretty. Great for tents. Not so much for folks who need their van, RV or whatever level. We had a nightmare of a time getting ours level. So wild!!

When we go kayaking I always wear these shoes that are great for walking on rocks and other slippery surfaces, I 1st wore them when we went to The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah. Such a great item!! But this day I wore them at Lake Norman I seriously got stuck in the mud while trying to get into my kayak, I hate taking dirt into my kayak 'cause then you have to clean out your kayak.... & draining water from your kayak is not the easiest task ever??! You live and learn. I just took off my shoe, wash it, and left it to dry a bit.... take a look below. hilarious kayakin' times!! I see it was my left shoe ... my foot was a bit cold in the kayak (it was early Nov. 2016 when we took this trip.) Are there always some silly crazy stories to tell about each trip you take?, I can't be the only, right?!? 




Thanks for stopping by today. Please enjoy this vlog from that day. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Lovely pictures. Some of those silly things are what make the best and most well remembered memories.
We have weird things happen just about every time we go anywhere. :)

Those are beautiful photos. I love the pink spots around the sun. Just beautiful.

Have a blessed day!

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…

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal.

I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
