Mary Whyte "We The People"













"Seven years in the making, WE THE PEOPLE: Portraits of Veterans in America opens at The City Gallery in Charleston, SC, with a Gala Celebration, October 25-27
Mary Whyte's WE THE PEOPLE is a moving and important tribute to our nation's greatest patriots - the men and women who served our country with courage, selflessness and honor." https://www.marywhyte.com/


If I had planned this post better, posting it last Sunday instead of this one, ((but let me tell ya life is busy right now, Thanksgiving prep while I am typing this 2 pies are baking, got lots to prep ... table is set, house is clean, did all my shopping to have everything I gotta chop, or cook and bake. I hope I have not forgotten anything??! I mean the store is not that far but you hate to forget stuff!! 11/27 when I am typing this ... any who!!)) Oops this art exhibit is no longer available to see where we saw it in City Gallery at Waterfront Park, Charleston, SC., it so did work out for us to see it while there in that area for a trailer rally. GORGEOUS art work!! Just amazing!! I really enjoy her techniques, You wanted to get up so close to see what she did use, such a fan!!! Please be sure to check out her website, it shares so many I didn't share here today. As always the reason for sharing these items here on my blog, is maybe you might not have a chance to see them in person like we did and I want you to feel apart of the travel world. All credit is given to "Mary Whyte" the artist ...I sure did enjoy, hope you did as well? Thank you for stopping by. I would make a point to see Mary's art on her website and see where it will be next? I was so happy that we had watched the piece on "CBS Sunday Morning" and then got to see it in real life. That has never happened before, AWESOME!! Have a great day. See you again real soon, I hope? Take Care! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

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 ( :
