Days Gone By Museum

Image
  Days Gone By Museum 122 Davis Street Portland, TN daysgonebyportland.org It was a busy day when we were visiting, I do believe it was in Sept 2021 after our trip to Tybee Island, Georgia. I love finding big tractors. I've always been a fan of those since I was very young. I recall being on my dad's, my Pop-Pop's (dad's dad. my grandfather) so I was always very comfortable on one. Would love to own as well. Maybe one day, we will, see??! I had plenty more shots of all the antiques, cars, and trucks but it is always hard picking out your most favorites. Hopefully these are great picks. So fun. Enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week. Beth ( ; 

Fort Pulaski

  Fort Pulaski National Monument Savannah, Georgia HEY THERE, bloggy friends. Hope you are well this week, as always please know I appreciate your comments and visits each and every time you do stop by. It makes me feel super special that you would make me a part of your daily life. THANK YOU!!  So many great shots from this day. We are thinking it was September of 2021, that we did visit Tybee Island, Georgia and got to see this amazing historical fort. I loved the shot of the window view and seeing the American flag blowing around, I love it when moments like those happen. WAY COOL!!  I am not always in the know about different ranks in the different services ...but the higher ups did have way more room. Bigger beds, place for eating, relaxing of sorts. The lower ranked men had hardly any space at all. A bed, if you could even call them that. Probably had some hay in the bed covering and I'm sure that lost it puffiness over time. Can you even imagine??? 2nd photo: can you see the

Easton Roller Mill

Image
  Easton Roller Mill, Morgantown, West VA historic sawmill and grist mill. began construction in 1864 and was completed in 1867.  "Wikipedia for more information"  (please if you are curious, head to their website for more information about this amazing mill, I was amazed and I love history, don't you??!!!! What I did love about this mill, look at those chimneys, not sure we have ever seen one with a chimney that I recall??? thinky face, not sure, what was tough was the mill is located so close to home, so it was tough to get a good photo without getting their homes included. Not what I would have wanted. But I wish I could have seen the back and more of the side views. Guess the online shots will do in a pinch.) This was a side trip we took while on a trip for the hubby's back appointment. If you care or if you need back help, I would be glad to give advice... he has been doing this treatment for a while now.  " Prolotherapy : based on the idea that chronic pain

Waterwheel Restaurant

  The Inn at Gristmill Square and Waterwheel Restaurant https://www.gristmillsquare.com/ Like I did say last week, if you missed that post please catch up "The Virginia Room"  I would be sharing our meal at the Waterwheel Restaurant. Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the rooms, they are all set so lovely together. A nice walk around during any season. We have been there in fall and springtime. Both were just amazing. I hope in the next few bits to tell you what we did have ...the hubs and I looked at their website and had the whole meal planned ....little did we realize that was just a sample menu. Apparently they must change it daily or weekly, not sure??!! It was a shocker, I had to start completely over and make something really connect. The hubby and I always wish to try items we might not have each and everyday.   I'm not sure why or how google (blogger) decides to input these pictures, but they are not in order of when they did occur. LOL!! So I will list what t

The Virginia Room

  The Inn at Gristmill Square and Waterwheel Restaurant https://www.gristmillsquare.com/ Hey there, sharing a trip we took in March 2022. The hubby had a back appointment, and this was the 2nd bed and breakfast we did stay in on the way home, we knew that the morning would hold lots of rain and boy did it pour. Maybe one day we can return to enjoy the local sights but it sure was fun either way!! We did stay in the Steele House in the "Virginia Room".  We had our parents stay there for their "50th wedding anniversary" (did you miss that post? That was 3 years ago, we did celebrate their huge milestone moment!!) in the "Silo Room". Or maybe you do wish to look back and the amazing meal (I know I am being silly, but I am curious why we didn't use the same dishes??) we did have??!! I am still drooling, may I say that meal was 10 times more flavorful than this one, not sure what did happen? I mean I do not wish to say it was not great, but for some reason

LOL!! We did figure that camping was out of the question considering his back condition then, so we did 2 different bed and breakfast. Going through PA, Maryland, West VA. Love finding "covered bridges" of all sorts ...this one was beside a sweet little stream. What fun!! Thank you for your visit today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;
