Yates mill (I think???)

duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, GOOSE!!!
I disappeared.
I won't even try anymore.

A few months ago we went to Yates mill, (I think) with a bunch of homeschool friends, and I got lots of pictures. 

 lilypads. 🐸


 A snowy egret.
verrrrrrrrrrry tiny. look in the back.

 that's better.

A small friend of Daisy, and Ivy's legs there in the corner.  

There's the mill!

 Yeah....we were on the rocks. a LOT.

 The rocks!

The mill!

The water!

 The dam!
(anyone else thinking about Percy Jackson?)
We had a picnic on the rocks, and discovered a snake, and the fact that we didn't pack enough lunch. 

We found a tiny turtle. ♥🐢 

 The top of the dam.

The rocks were really fun to climb on. We climbed for a long time, while the mom's were talking, but than this lady came and told us we weren't allowed on the far side of the rocks, where we were climbing. hmph. 
So we climbed on different rocks.
 There were stairs going up the hill past the mill, (lol) and it had stone walls for railings. More precarious, and therefore more fun. 
(The flowers were growing by the path)

 There were some nice plants on top of the hill, as well as a door into the mill. (locked)

 There was also a little place to stand over the dam and water wheel.

And some cute little red flowers. 🌹

Until next time!
