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

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 ( ;
