Starr's Mill . . .

On our way to Senoia, we passed this gorgeous red building that looked like an old barn with the prettiest waterfall next to it.  I knew I had to stop on the way back and get a closer look.  It turned out to be an old mill from the 1800's. 

I fell in love with everything about it!!  The perfect location to visit on a hot Georgia day!!  These three ladies thought so too.  : )

Can we get a little privacy??

I guess we'll be on our way then.  Lol!!

At the base of the waterfall there were lots of people with shovels and bowls.  At first, Megan and I thought they might be panning for gold (really we did.  Not sure what normally goes on in Georgia!!).

Upon further investigation . . .

 we discovered it was clams they were digging for!!  Lots of them too!!

Our stop at Starr's Mill was one of my favorite stops on our vacation.  I swear I could've taken a thousand photos there alone!!  I honestly didn't have any idea that I'd love Georgia as much as I did.  If it wasn't so darn hot and I wasn't such a New York girl I might even think about moving there when the kids are all grown.  : )

 Next stop . . .  Tennessee!!!

Happy Thursday y'all!!  ~ Wendy

What a peaceful looking place! I love historical buildings like that! And the plaque with the story of the Creek indians nearby....made me think of the indian burial grounds near Sophia's church.
Great photos and story!
