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

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
