Fort Niagara State Park, NY






Fort Niagara State Park, New York, 1 Scott Ave. Youngstown, NY. 14174, (716)745-7273. if you know anything about Beth, you must know that she loves history, i just wonder why we don't build buildings like we did in the olden days? ones that will hold up, not fall down, with stand the test of time, decades and for years way down the line? i really had fun this day, just seeing the views, the men working there, it was fun to see the interactive side, listen to their stories, see the views and just check out this old fort.

i wish i had gotten the lady names at the front desk area, she was just so kind, we told her what time we had, what we wanted out of our visit and she just told us what to see, where to have lunch, what not to miss, i love finding locals like that around. she was just a real peach, so kind. that is a saying, right??! an old friend immediately, loved her!! big thanks to her!! she was awesome!! have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

The structures look well kept up, and the area has great appeal!

Yes, "She is a real peach" - is a marvelous phrase.

I agree, instead of "cost saving" building materials, it would be excellent to see worthwhile structures . . meant to serve the People - now and the ones to come. (Built to last.)

Thank you for taking me along on your adventures.

love & love,

As you know, we are in the disposable age... if it falls apart it can be rebuilt and there is money to be made doing that. I love all buildings especially Stone ones... looks like a nice park. Glad you visited. Have a good week.

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 ...it 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 ...you 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 ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun 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 ( :
