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" 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!! ( ;

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. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, GA

"Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, GA", this was our 1st visit. Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!

Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
