Snow has not been in short supply here in beautiful, blustery Plymouth. Saturday night we got almost a foot more–apparently we were in the “sweet spot” and got way more than everywhere else. Thanks Mother Nature!
That hasn’t stopped us from opening our doors, however. We’ll be open all this week for February Vacation (wasn’t Christmas break, like, yesterday?) If you want to come to a beautiful place with lots of fun stuff for kids to do, pay us a visit. We’ll be here all week (February 15 – February 22), from 9am – 5pm. Kids can with take a mill tour and do fun stuff like making a model millstone, playing with a mini waterwheel, sifting cornmeal, making corn prints, and making a mini windmill. Don’t tell the little ones, but we bet they’ll even learn a little something too.
At Plimoth Plantation’s main site there are all kinds of kids’ workshops and behind the scenes tours too. For more info, visit our February Vacation page.
Snow and ice may make it hard to run the mill, but they sure do make for some pretty pictures. We’ve taken some time out from milling, tracking down heirloom corn varieties, and winter maintenance to grab some pictures here and there. Have a look…
Here are some pictures of the mill pond. In the picture above, the mill pond is just to the left out of the frame. Water from the pond runs through a culvert, under the road, to the mill.
So, come on down this week for a visit. And bring your camera. It really is this pretty.
Oh, and about that little gap since the last blog post…. Sorry about that. I could say that we were too busy actually doing things at the Mill to write about them, but that’s only partly true. Let’s just say that we’re back with all kinds of things, molinological and otherwise, to share.
So let’s keep in touch. There’s a lot of good stuff coming up at the Mill.
