Buggs Island Beauty

Summer started off a bit crazy but we had a great vacation at Buggs Island!

What a summer! As my children finished school in June, my father went into the hospital. This seamed to bring time and life to a stand still. He had open heart surgery and for 2-3 weeks his life was dangling between with us – or onward. Thank goodness he came through and continues to heal as we go through the summer. Thanks to all my friends for their prayers!




After Dad became stable, we took our annual summer trip. Our summer vacation took place at Bugs Island this year (or officially called John Kerr Reservoir) , which is a huge lake on the Virginia/North Carolina border. It is a wonderful place (minus the bug bites). My in-laws made all the arrangements from the campsite to the wonderful food that they feed us all week. It was a wonderful vacation that two of my children will always remember!

If you love fishing and the beautiful outdoors, this place is a must! It had great camp sites, beautiful views, excellent fishing, and the beach area was lots of fun for the kids! And don’t forget an important camping need – the bath house was always clean.

If you want to visit the lake, check out their official web site at

Thanks for dropping in!

Hi Kathy - I hope your father is well on his way to full recovery.
What a great summer your family is enjoying. My husband and I love camping and someday when we have our own kids we will take them with us. Thanks for dropping by the Furry Friday site. Hope you'll come back. Cheers!

Thanks for visiting my SWF and for leaving a link to your blog - love your shots, and glad to discover it. This one especially appeals to me, the curve the sparkling astrels (a word I made up for the sun glints on water) make. Very very nice!
