Motor Mill, Elkader, Iowa






Motor Mill, Elkader, IA. 52043

Let's see that mill ...I wonder why folks don't get the history behind these amazing pieces of architecture. I know we have moved forward in technology ...but come on folks these places need to be preserved. Take care of and remembered. I wonder why so many folks of a younger age don't think about where we have come from and know it is meant to be honored and preserved. I wish I could come up with a better word than "preserved" but that is what keeps popping into my mind at the moment of typing up this post. Think of men (I don't believe the ladies did this work, but if they did ... THANK YOU!) did most of the work and it is just amazing. Such history. Thanks, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Mills were high tech in their time. I was told that there was one within three miles of most people, so they could walk there.

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 ( ;
