Wild Easter Lilies?

Hey there!!! Welcome, glad you are here, These were seen while kayaking ...I am guessing they are some sort of lily? They sure do look like Easter Lilies??! Cool, huh? I wish I could have gotten closer but I was trying to steady the kayak while I got my camera just right and zoomed on in??! cool, huh??! 

It is funny how when you are a blogger, you start looking at your collection of photos and you know that the share pot is getting smaller smaller and you really should be adding more to that share spot instead of just sharing all the time. I am at that spot right now. But forcing the issue is not what you need, as an art you gotta feel the call have to feel a shot ...not force it. So I have a few to share and I am hoping to have more soon. How do you feel when it comes to picture taking?

We went to a Fiberglass Rally in Alabama in March 2017 called Green Eggs and Ham, boy was it still cold even though if it was held in Alabama ... I took my short just in case it was warm ... so cold. My hubby thought it was refreshing? You see we recently lost a camping friend and it was a tough rally. So many of were reminiscing our trips with the both of them and wondering why he had past so suddenly? What moments we like to recall of him and how fun he was. He was a pretty quiet man but the moments we did share will be forever remembered as great and so special. I am super blessed that we had the time we did and it was so fun!!! Rick was so quiet my older age I have found I do take time to just be quiet and take it all in. I tend to like the more quiet folks 'cause I do find a uniqueness in or with them, Faye we love ya, You see Faye had just started getting her camper in order, it was so cute, all decorated and such, it was too soon, or at least it was to us??! ...I feel out of sorts, missing my budding Rick. His humor, his jokes??! Not sure why, but his passing as touch me, not sure why or how some one I didn't know for very long can cause such pain? A feeling of loss, I keep asking GOD why, we needed him here you know? Faye, we (my hubby & I) we needed his friendship. Friendships are hard to find, ones that are real special or different, feel that part of you? you know?! Does loss feel different at different ages or times in your life? Wonder why? I do find myself in tears at times, wondering why? Trying to recall the times we did share. It is just plain tough. Frustrating at times. 

Do you ever carry on with your life and just need a moment? Too breathe and just stew a bit?

Lately I have not felt like picking up my camera??! I know I need 2, but it just feels like you wanna enjoy that trip and that special moment (one you might not have again, this is a great one, you wanna soak it all in and never forget, will it be your last? when will it be your time? I know don't sound so dramatic but you never know, only God knows when it is your time, you know??!) and not feel pressured to take a picture? Does that even make sense? 

So please enjoy this post and for all the folks we have lost some one recently or even a long time ago ...these blooms are in their memory. We honor them and their time we had them here in the real. We Love You Rick you will be forever missed. Rest In Peace. Bless You ...sweet travels in those heavenly clouds. Thank you for stopping by and hearing my thoughts. Have a great day. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

They certainly appear to be in the Lilly family. So sorry about the sudden passing of your friend Rick; he sounds like a nice man. Love and prayers to you and his family in this very difficult time. I really feel that sometimes we have to put the camera down and really soak up our's good for the soul.

Death is a shock at any time, but particularly if it's sudden. I'm sorry about your friend.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

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 ( :
