Berry Hill Plantation, South Boston, VA

"Berry Hill Plantation", also known simply as Berry Hill, is a historic plantation located on the west side of South Boston in Halifax County, Virginia, United States. The main house, transformed c. 1839 into one of Virginia's finest examples of Greek Revival architecture, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1969. The surviving portion of the plantation, which was once one of the largest in the state, is now a conference and event center.

I was super lucky to get to go with my Mom to her cousin's 80th birthday party at "Berry Hill Resort". Now let me give ya the details... My Mom and I were so excited. You see not to long ago maybe 4 or 5 years ago, we drove to the Biltmore Estates and viewed the Downton Abbey showing. Sadly you could not take pics of the outfits, so there are only flowers, the home outside and the inn we stayed in. Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Blooms, & Inn Views

We left one rainy Friday and returned on Sunday. The party was held in the maroon pinkish room. We got a tour of the plantation home from a man that has worked for the resort for many a year. So fun to hear the history of the home (it's multiple owners) and is supposedly haunted. We had a dinner the evening of the party with just a small group of us, learning that the waiter (& his girlfriend who also works there) had also had several ghostly experiences??! Do you believe in ghosts? I'll be sharing a bunch of those views over the next few weeks. ENJOY!! I appreciate your comments. See ya again real soon. Have a great day!!! 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 ( :
