It is amazing the history, the architecture that is around this park. So amazing. I really enjoyed our visit there!!! I think my most favorite area or section would be the bowling alley, can you imagine having your very own bowling alley? Took think of how many years it has been around and still looks in pretty good condition compared to other areas or buildings, so wild!! Now they do have side that sort of hang over to keep the snow from falling into the bowling alley there, but that just blows my mind to think of the horrible Adirondack winters, just totally shocking!!! When I get rich, LOL! I will definitely have to have my own bowling alley, swimming pool and helpers to help me learn how to bowl 1st off! have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon. 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 ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
