Dick and I had been wanting to ride over to Beaver Creek State Park. They had never been there. It is about forty miles from our home. The day was beautiful-no rain in the forecast.
The Park offers a shady place to picnic, fish and hike. There are huge pines and a stream that meanders through the grounds. What makes it even more special is the old restored Gaston Mill. It was built in 1830. It was part of the Canal system in the area. There is a church, schoolhouse and a covered bridge from that bye-gone era as well.
In the summer the buildings are open for people to stroll through at their leisure. There are a great many artifacts housed in the Mill. The place is not only rich in beauty but in history.

It was a delightful day. Sharing a place makes it so memorable. I am certainly glad to have had our good friends ride along. Life's journey is made richer by friendship. What a blessing from God.
Thanks for coming too. May God bless your journey!
