Hey There!! Hope you are good this week. We took a ride in the country in our convertible and saw this gorgeous grist mill. You could hear the water when you immediately parked. Such a pretty ole' sound. We were the only ones there, a great place to take a picnic lunch, walk or just look around??! A lovely summer day. End of June day trip. A few of these shots I took with my hand held camera ...others the hubby took with his Android cell phone ...i think they were all so awesome 2 not sure??! ENJOY!!

How's your life going? Thanks, for stopping by. Beth ( ;

"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.

(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.
