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!!

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!

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care.
