A Day Trip

 We headed out yesterday early in the morning with a specific destination in mind.

 We followed the river for a while and thus saw many old mills along the way.

 This one is still functioning.

 These wonderful old homes show that at one time, these towns were very prosperous.


 One of my favorite homes, one of the worst possible locations.


 I love the Mail Pouch Tobacco barns.

This place needs a bit of work though they do have a satellite dish attached to the front of the house.  Priorities!
What a great front porch.

 Soon we were in Amish country.


 Quilts for sale.  Click to enlarge any pic.

 Baskets and brooms.

 Can you tell we were in dairy country?

 A new one. It is very cool that Mail Pouch still advertises on these barns.


I never get tired of driving through the countryside.  The whole way we talked about our imaginary farm and what we we grow and which animals we would raise.  Maybe one of these days! Tomorrow I will show you were we ended up.
