After a good Mexican food lunch we stopped at an old mill on the way back to the cabin.
Nora Mill was such a neat little place. Still grinding grain everyday the old-fashioned way, with stones and water for power. Click on the link and read all about the history of the place. fascinating. Then if you want to… order you some grits!!! 🙂
We got to hear all about how this old stone grinder works.
And this one, that was actually grinding as we listened to him.
And out that window is the Chattahoochee River.
Isn’t that pretty?
And of course we had to get some grits and Chattahoochee hot cereal to try. The verdict is in now that we have cooked and eaten some of both. The boys found it hard to get “into” the grits. They are used to eating “regular”, store-bought, processed to death white grits. So the jump to yellow, wholesome, actual ground corn kind’a grits – that have taste – well, lets just say they are going to have to get used to it! Cuz, I’m hooked!
Oh, and we all loved the Chattahoochee hot cereal. VERY good. They even agreed that it’s better than Cream of Wheat!
Harrison did a good job taking this photo.
We also visited an antique shop across the street where Dave and I bought each other a little something special. I will show you those at a later time. The boys opted to stay in the car, so we didn’t feel like we could spend as much time in that huge place as we would have liked to. Maybe another time when we visit up there.
It was great day!
And maybe tomorrow I can tell you about the next day of our getaway,
