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.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
