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!! ( ;

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the campsites ...u get this beachfront view, so peaceful. I really enjoy beach walking, it is like you can hear yourself thinking, u can shake out all the silliness and just be YOU! Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise! Tell all my loved ones hi, I miss them. Lately, I have been really miss my Grandma, and my Great Aunt. Hope they are treating u good??! Life is good. Bring Spri…

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 was a real COLD adventure 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 ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
