Burwell Morgan Mill, Millwood, Virginia





"Burwell Morgan Mill", Millwood, Virginia, 1782, what a gorgeous mill, the Monday we were in the area it was not open. Fri & Sun 12-5 Sat 10-5. I would say if you have never been to grist mill, make sure of their hours & take a visit. Well worth the time & drive. It is so fun to learn how one works, see the gears turning, hear the gears turning & see what items they do make. Lot of them still make & sell the flour, buckwheat flour, corn mill, it all depends. Such amazing work, I guess I was raised in a family that found pride & honor in that kind of work... getting your hands dirty, keep those gears working smoothly & all. Very cool. Beth ( :

Looks like a really interesting place.
Another beautiful working mill in Raphine VA is Wades Mill. They have a lovely little shop and right next door is Buffalo Springs Herb Farm. It's a beautiful drive through the Shenandoah Valley as well!

A beautiful building! How neat that it was built back in the 1700s! It is wonderful when people can take pride in working with their hands. I have a family like that as well, and I'm so happy I've had the opportunity to do so many things most people my age would never even dream of doing--walking beans, shoveling grain bins, helping butcher a deer, etc. I may not have enjoyed them while doing them, but I'm very thankful I was given the experience.

Real old fashioned flour. That is cool that they still make it.
Such places are always fascinating to visit aren't they! xx

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 ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
