Moving on up

Yesterday we were up earlier than usual because the gang wanted to have breakfast together.
So Jeremy told us about Helen's Country Café that had good food for a good price. Now when he said good prices that got my attention.
When we got there they had a crowd waiting but it didn't take long to be seated and served with some good hot coffee. I opened my menu and sure enough good prices and for Helen that is hard to find. the service was and the wait time was not bad considering the crowd they had.  This place serves breakfast and lunch only. I can't blame them for doing that because they must be tired by the time 2:00 comes around.
After we were through with our breakfast Jeremy says follow me I want you to see the old mill on the river. So we jumped in our cars(more like drug ourselves to the car after a big breakfast)and drove 4 miles down stream to the mill.
They still stone grind the corn as they have for a great number of years.
All kinds of painted enamel and cast iron pans and skillets. Also honey, jams, jelly, and any kitchen do dad you would want.
Out back they have a dam to power the mill for grinding and as you can see the over flow for fishing.   We watched for a while and a few of the guys caught some fish.
Here they are watching the fishermen and the fish.
After time at the mill Nancy and I went back home while the rest of the gang was just getting started with their lineup of Zip Lining and river tubing.
It was another good day spent with the family.  Today we will be going north again.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Nice spending time together like that and getting to see an old time mill still in operation.
Having big meals like that when we travel really slows us down.
You should have tried the Zip-Lining. We found it exhilarating.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
