P.J. Gilligan, Burkittsville, Maryland





Hey there!! I have 2 or is it 3 other trips to share before this one actually did happen in life but for some reason I just wanted to share this amazing one real quick 'cause it was so awesome. Not that the other trips were not great as well ...but this one included some awesome must see spots!!! It was a quick getaway over Memorial Day weekend. Come along with me ... & please enjoy!!

What or where are we visiting today, you might ask? Well, it would be "P.J. Gilligan Dry Goods & Mercantile Co. Burkittsville, MD Est 1821". They are frozen in the 1860s. They have a very odd open schedule, so we were super glad they were open when we drove on by. Stop in and look around, but they are only open 11-7pm on Saturdays and 12-7pm on Sundays. I love history ...love stopping in to see some old business that might have had some great historical folks stopping in to see or visit. Look at that step ...who might have step up there? If you are ever in this area please do stop by and see them. Completely forgot to take a picture of what we got ...some handmade soaps. They do wrapped them all up like they did in the day ...brown paper with a twine which was draping from the ceiling. We might be famous too... a husband and wife were shopping, last picture there and he writes a little newspaper ...supposedly he will be write a bit about us shopping in the store. Can't wait to see!!! I'll keep ya posted. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Hello Beth, what a neat old place. I am glad they are open for business. Looks like a interesting store with lots of goodies. I have to look at a Maryland map to see where Burkittsville is located?

Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

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.
