Amana Woolen Mill, Amana, Iowa





"Amana Woolen Mill". We did look at their amazing work, would have loved to take home of these blankets, but they were not within our price range. On trips you have to give & take. A picture will have to do. Enjoy!!! Always such a fan of seeing how items are made, very cool to see that products are still made within the great country of the USA. way cool!!!  I'm guessing that the building above is the train station. The day we were there it was pretty empty and not a lot of the Amana businesses were open. Beth ( :

The woolen mill looks like a place I would love to go, Elizabeth. I know what you mean about buying things on trips. If I bought every thing that I wanted to buy, not only would we be totally broke, but there would not be room to fit it in our car! I enjoyed your post!!

Pretty cool that you saw how they were made.

Anything handmade is always special. Too bad they were too expensive for you to get one.

Those spools of wool look like toilet paper! Looks like a neat place to visit. Have a wonderful week.
Well always fun to admire even when you can't buy.
I agree. Most of my souvenirs are on an SD card. :-)

What a blast from the past--I worked at a textile mill years ago, putting those cones of thread onto machines!

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 ( :

Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise!
