At the mill over the ridge
Saturday was an unbelievably beautiful day in northern Virginia filled with bright blue skies, gentle winds and the smell of spring. A trip across the ridge into Clarke county produced this photo complete with a roller coaster like fence trailing off in the distance. There is also a Tastee Freez just south on 340, yum.
The trip included a jaunt over the to Burwell-Morgan Mill. This is an incredible machine that runs as it did in the 18th century. It is amazing how little water is required to keep the main wheel turning. The kids and I watched it grind corn, it even ran the sifter.
