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.

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.

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  ( :
