Finally broke free of the greater bay area traffic today. I spent the night in Santa Rosa visiting with family – I had a great time playing with my two nephews (minecraft and Top Gear videos on YouTube with one – tickling and playing peek-a-boo with the other)
I managed to stop and take some photos of Mt Shasta – it was a such a clear day – see the photos below.
I was barely able to make it to the first mill on my list – in Eagle Point OR (see below). I arrived a few minutes after their official closing time but they were still hanging around. I was able to convince them to sell me a DVD on the mill and its operation, along with some stone ground corn muffin mix, pancake mix and cookie mix! I also picked up a home made ginger cookie – it was great!
I had a short talk with the owners about their mill and they turned me on to the Society for Preservation Of Old Mills (www.spoom.org) – I haven’t taken too much of a look at it tonight but will check it out definitely
I am having a great time and the scenery is beautiful
