Visit to Grist Mill

Another day is gone and we have had a very enjoyable day at an old grist mill. It is located a couple of miles from where we lived before leaving for Honduras. There are always lots of ole' timers there showing how to do many old trades by hand or the hard way. The mill is a very neat attraction where they grind corn into flour, corn meal and grits. We had a great family day and really enjoyed the relaxing sound of the stream that flows through this historical site.

Ole' Grist Mill

Tomorrow is the Lord's Day so we will be back on the road, but thankfully we don't have to far to drive. In the morning we will be in Chesnee, SC with Rev. Kenneth Rice and church. In the evening we will be in Boiling Springs, SC where Rev. Dan Parker is pastoring. We pray the Lord will give us the words we need to share how the Lord is working and blessing in Honduras.

Reminds me of Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell, Indiana. We loved going there as kids and walking barefoot in the freezing cold creek that runs through the park. When we go back to visit Mom and Dad that is a favorite place to revisit!!

I've been to a couple of grist mills. One of them is in Babcock State Park in WV, and the other one is along the Blue Ridge Parkway in VA. The scenery is always so beautiful around them.
Mom told me that she saw you guys at camp in Pt Pleasant. Wish I could have been there. Oh well, maybe someday.
