I love that I live so close to such rich history here on the East coast. Yates Mill is not far from our house and it dates back to 1758. How cool is that. It has been the meeting spot of church baptisms, budding romances, prime fishing, and loads of history. The mill used to grind corn, grain etc. for the farmers so that they could then sell the goods. My how technology has changed huh. I just love standing somewhere that people before me have stood for hundreds of years and then I think about all the things that might have happened around me....good and bad. It fascinates the heck out of me. Yes, you could call me a history enthusiast but, I like to think about it more than I need to read every single detail in a museum or book.
My little Daisy bean was fantastic the entire time we cruised around this Mill. She was all smiles and enjoyed checking out the scenery. My little boo boo may not be the funnest driving companion but, she is a blast to have as a buddy when I get out of the car and walk around. She always flaps her arms and legs and makes silly noises whenever people walk by. She cracks me up! Do you enjoy historical sites or do they bore you to tears??
