watery wednesday - an old vermont grist mill

Weston, Vermont

I'm not sure what it is about old grist mills that I find so fascinating.
Do you remember a short-run television show from the 70s about a family that moved into an old grist mill?
Apple something... No? - Oh well...
We found this one hidden behind the Weston Playhouse

Which - as a complete aside - is a super fantastic place to see a play -
if you like that sort of thing - which i do

I think this grist mill is part of a museum that I have yet to visit -

I've been organizing my quickly-growing collection of photos,
(and actually deleting a few because, let's face it, some are just not that good)
and I was feeling lucky to run  across several watery ones from this summer.
Pretty soon, the only water I'll be seeing around here will be the frozen kind.

And now - it's time to take my pie out of the oven.
Triple Chocolate Pumpkin
(recipe - just in case you're feeling the same as I did when I read - Triple-Chocolate-Pumpkin)
Here's hoping it's half as good as Martha's!

I'm wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thanks for dropping in!
