Mud Creek Falls

After our stop at Sky Valley, we continued on to Mud Creek Falls. Our GPS was not very helpful in finding this waterfall! It is located inside of a golf course so at first we felt a little lost. However there are signs (which we noticed after driving around for bit) to point you in… Continue reading Mud Creek Falls

Sky Valley

Since we've moved, we've taken up a new hobby on the weekends of just driving in any direction and seeing where it takes us. The county we live in borders both North Carolina and Georgia, so there is no shortage of places to go! Back in July one of our endeavors led us to Sky… Continue reading Sky Valley

Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel

When we first moved here to South Carolina we were so eager to explore! First up on our list was Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel. This park is fairly close by in the city of Walhalla. So long story short- the tunnel was originally supposed to be part of the Blue Ridge Railroad but was never finished.… Continue reading Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel

A Wish

I yearn for a place just out of reach, one where the sun never sets and the ocean speaks. Troubles wash away whilst the waves crash ashore, it may be wishful thinking, to hope for a little bit more. Picture & Poem written by myself. Picture taken in Bathsheba, Barbados.

Travel Thursday: St. Croix USVI

St. Croix was our first stop on a Caribbean cruise we took back in January and it sure was a start to a wonderful trip. ┬áThe cruise port in St. Croix is located in Frederiksted. There is plenty to do in and around the city so an excursion was not necessary for us that day.… Continue reading Travel Thursday: St. Croix USVI

Travel Thursday: St. Maarten

In January of 2015 I visited the gorgeous island of St. Maarten during a southern Caribbean cruise. In the 8 hours I was there I had the pleasure of seeing a couple beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery. Pulling into port was quite an experience. The island of St. Maarten is divided between the French and… Continue reading Travel Thursday: St. Maarten

Jardin de Balata

My quick visit to Martinique this past January was something I will never forget. Before I talk about the breathtaking Jardin de Balata, I must say that pulling into port in Martinique was out of this world. Felt a little like I was looking at "Jurassic Park." Located on the island of Martinque (a small… Continue reading Jardin de Balata
