Metamora, Indiana







The day we stopped by the "Duck Creek Aqueduct", Metamora, Indiana, the shops were closed (it was a Sunday, hey you do what what ya gotta do when traveling, Sunday's happen & you have to make due.) We did have fun checking out the views. Be sure to click the pics to enlarge them to read those signs. Such amazing info. "Metamora Grist & Roller Mill" built in 1845 - rebuilt in 1900. & how often do you see an aqueduct? Metamora is such a cool area. Beth ( ;

Hello Beth, I enjoyed this post on your visit to the Duck Creek Aqueduct. Sorry the shops were closed, at least you were able to view the canal boat, buildings and the canal. Great series of photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your week.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Duck Creek Aqueduct provided you with so many wonderful photo ops! Sad about the shops being closed, though.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
