New Presque Isle Lighthouse, Michigan


Had to do a bit of some research there are 3 different lighthouses with similar names, just so you know this is: New Presque Isle Lighthouse, Michigan. I recall now when doing this research that the hubby did say that there were several with the same name, made at different times and only this 1 was easy enough at the season to get close enough, if I am thinking of the right lighthouse, 1 you have to do some off-roading to even see it up close, I think some real walking too ... this is the New one. Built in 1870, east of the Grand Lake, sits on the namesake peninsula. it is one of the 149 lighthouses in Michigan. Can you imagine, that many lighthouses, I gotta go see what Virginia has??! I can not imagine that mean. Michigan is just too cool!!! 4500 E Grand Lake Road, Presque Isle, MI 49777, height: 108', (989) 595-9917. What was super cool about the internet while finding all these tidbits ... there is a 360 (or is it 460 view, any who??! I think you know what I mean.) view inside the home there ... when we visited there was only 1 other couple, they were closed for the season so it was fun to see the inside, very interesting. LOVE that!! Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Very nice! Virginia has some nice ones, but if we have that many, some are a newer style that looks industrial instead of pretty.

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…
