Santee State Park


HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Here's hoping this 2018, will be so amazing for each of you, have you made any plans? Santee State Park, Santee, South Carolina, this was our 3 or 4 trip to this state park, a gorgeous area of South Carolina ...we were meeting friends, we had been to a Casita rally in Matagorda, Texas ...heading home after this camping event, which we had great weather there, shorts and short sleeve weather. Amazing how it changed so quickly, in early December 2017. I will be sharing those pics soon enough ...just you wait!! When you plan trips you plan for great weather. Do folks normally think rain? We do, we want good weather please. It was so cold and pouring rain with lots of wind. But we made do ...we made foods together we had chili and salad, hot dogs one night, and stay a lot in their camper, so much bigger than ours. So fun, no matter the weather. No kayaking at this park during the rain. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you are well. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Hello, the park name sounds familiar but I have never been there. I hope to go to Texas some day just to do some birding near the Rio Grande and border.

I hate it when you go hoping for good weather and get just the opposite.


Happy New Year! I hope yours is a good one.

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", 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…
