Saltville, Virginia


We had a fiberglass rally to go to Friday Oct 29 - Sunday Oct 29, 2017 ...if the hubby had not had to work we would have gotten there earlier. It was such a cold rainy rally. SO COLD!!! We stayed at Hungry Mother State Park, Virginia. If you are looking for a camping please do check that state park, We love it! Our rally host recommended going to "Museum Of The Middle Appalachians, Saltville, Virginia" ...it was so full of Virginia history... not sure I have ever heard so much info about one area of Virginia. I know we are rich in history here in Virginia ...but there is just so many unique items about Saltville, VA that I truly did enjoy this museum. This area is know as: "The Salt Capital of the Confederacy", you can see Ice Age Mammals, artifacts, fossils, If you are an lover of history, the past, historical events, and just a love for learning ...please check this out!




Right down the road is Palmer Grist Mill a replica water powered grist mill. The hubby said let me take your picture... you may ask Beth, why are you showing 3 pics of you? See sometimes when my hubby gets the camera ...he takes so many shots of me and other views, I never know what he is doing, sometime I keep the camera just to take what I wish to take, I think he is done with the shots but NO he is picking on me, wouldn't it be the nice thing to say "HONEY, I am taking your picture, smile??!" At first I smile 'cause I know he is taking my picture, then I stop smiling and just give him the evil eye. LOL!! That flannel shirt was over another shirt, it was just so cold. I wish I had taken my rain boots, my sneakers got wet walking through that grass it was rainy off and now. Thank you for stopping by and enjoying my humor. Have a great day! Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed!! ( ;

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  ( :
