Goin' to the mill today to buy fresh, stone-ground grits 'n cornmeal!
Can you believe this 1860's gristmill remained open until 1968? Anyway, it's open today for the Kenan's Mill Fall Festival & Bluegrass Event. So, while I purchase my meal, I get to listen to The Grasshopper Stringband, young Caleb Bryant & The Carrel Family over at the bandstand.
I might even try a hand at molding some Alabama clay into pottery or "walking" across Valley Creek on the swinging bridge. There's a "beehive" charcoal kiln on the other side, and I can take some really cool photos from inside looking up through the smokestack to the sky.
Then, I think I'll head on over to the vittles wagon for some Hoppin' John and maybe a burger or some of those homemade cookies made by the local Master Gardeners. I reckon they can bake as well as garden!
If I had younguns, they'd run over to those inflatable game things and then they'd want to ride in the hay wagon.
Have a great weekend! I sure plan to!
