…BUT!


I know. I am always talking about how gorgeous WV is.

You just can’t take a photo here without it looking like a painting, it’s so pretty.

Take this fast-flowing, boulder-strewn trout stream. There’s a sign that says–Kayak At Your Own Risk. Uh, yeah.

This is Glade Creek Grist Mill, a restored water mill at Babcock State Park located in Fayette County, a couple hours from where I live. It’s a fully operable mill and they sell cornmeal and buckwheat flour through the park office.

Believe it or not, the park used to allow people to swim here.

Been anywhere good lately? Tell me!

    Ever feel like you’re lost in a John Denver song? Some days, that’s what your blog does to me. That, and my brother’s Postcards from Colorado.

    Were you on a bridge when you took the shot? It looks like you are in the middle of the creek.

    Congratulations Estella!

    I love the pictures and would love some buckwheat flour. My Mom used to make buckwheat pancakes for us. Yummy.

    Hmm…my dh and ds2 went to a corn maze yesterday. I had to stay behind with ds1 but that’s okay. It was cold and windy here. They had a blast!

    Congrats Estella!

    The pictures are beautiful! You could have them enlarged and then hang them! You could become a photographer and have your own show! I know they would sell! :yes:

    Beautiful pictures! I would love to see that everyday. Do you live nearby?

    Btw, I love that you have Nathan Kamp as the cover model for “The Beast Within”. He’s the guy I did a tribute to at my blog (I think back in March). Can you say obsessed? LOL.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
