Algonac State Park, Marine City, MI




Hey there folks! Let's check out: Algonac State Park, Marine City, Michigan ...if you know anything about the hubby & myself ...we love so many amazing states ...here are a few that really mean so much to us: 

1. Virginia & West Virginia, 
2. Montana & Wyoming, 
3. Maine & Michigan 

... those are our top 3. So every time we get to Michigan ...it is like we are home again. There is not a location in Michigan we have visited that has not made us love it even more. This state park is just so amazing. Check out how close that water traffic is to the campground. You can just watch it go by ...so cool. & Right over that water way is Canada!! SO Close, SO Cool!! We saw tugboats, huge barges, tiny boats, all sorts. I think that is a huge reason why the fiberglass rally has continued to be held there over and over! I am one who enjoys going to new rallies every time, we have yet to go to the same one over, but you know what? I think I would consider going to this rally again next year just for the view, the people, the amount of events around there to check out!!! One of the most important pieces of that puzzle, how much we love Canadians. If you wanna know why? I would be glad to tell ya why, But the Americans might be a bit jealous or envious??! We Love Canadians oh so much, I just hope they love us just as much?!!! ( ;

The 2nd shot is a bike way / walk way that you can walk or bike along right a hop skip and a jump away from the state park. It is so neat, I only wish it was a longer trail. So fun!! Gorgeous views!

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well and having a great week so far. Take Care! Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

A little slice of home! I grew up in Michigan (points to thumb).

Quite a pleasant looking spot.
So happy you can do so much traveling! Glad Virginia is high on your list! We consider it our "second" home. Alabama is our first. We always thought we would retire to Virginia, but life is full of twists and turns! Have a great week!

It does look like a very pretty area. - I think it's great you have favorite spots to visit. Have you ever visited Washington State? I think you would fall in love with it.

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  ( :
