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!

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

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 ( ;

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.

Cove Point Lighthouse
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  ( :
