Kymulga Grist Mill

Posted on 8:22 PM by jr cline | 1 comments

Mid 50s.  Rainy.  Gray.  Good day to go to the Grits Festival for some shrimp and grits.
  

    
Due to the rain, the Grits Festival was canceled.  Since I was there, I walked around taking pictures for a couple of hours.

   
Old buckboard  
    These pictures of the mill were taken from the covered bridge.   
  I don't know if you can tell, but the river was over its banks in places.
 
   
The mill is in danger of washing away and they are rebuilding/restoring the foundation.  I ventured under the mill to take a look at some of that work. 

 Inside the covered bridge
I don't know why I didn't take a picture of the bridge from the outside.    
I got one beneath it.   
     After crossing the river, I meandered along the trail.   
   The trail was flooded in some spots and muddy just about everywhere.
   
   
Though I ended up damp from the drizzling rain and my feet were wet and muddy from the trail, it was an awesome adventure.  The light was wonderful for photography.  Much better than harsh 1 pm sunshine.  I'm glad I went.
   
I don't actually eat shrimp and grits.  I just wanted to mention them since they are so popular at the festival.
 
See what else I’m doing.

Side note:  I just realized I should check myself for ticks before going to bed.   It's times like this that a woman friend would really come in handy.
