Adventures at the Mill

Last Saturday My brother and two of my nephews came over to see the new place and hang out on the river. My two nephews are huge adventurers. anytime they can go out in the woods and have a "steak out" they do. I do have to admit My brother and I were when we were there age, so Saturday took us both back. We started our day by eating at "Jimbo's on the River" because you can never start an adventure without a homemade Burger and Onion Rings. The river was a little down that day but it was still flowing pretty good over the wall.We had the idea to try and see how close we could get to it. the following pics. are our steps we had to take to make it to that wall...(captions under each pic. to describe the action). The boys did find a dead spider scorpion thing and a very old petrified coconut. Maybe in a few years Wilson can join in on the fun.

We thought the day was lost until we found this Tree, that is how we made it across the part of the river that was too deep walk on
We then found a Comfortable Seat with a built in cup holder...Perfect for any outdoors man

Had a Detour of a waterfall that actually goes inside part of the building. (This is Actually to the right of the wall)
Its like I have my own Ruby Falls in my backyard. (don't worry I don't charge Admission)
We Made it to the wall, where we found a nice comfortable place to sit

Kevin Gave us the "Rock On" symbol in this one (Thats his hand in the upper left corner)

Our Crowning achievement.

And of course Sadie had to have an adventure of her own. (The ladder is proberly a ten foot ladder and she is on the second step from the top)
**You can now stop the Indiana Jones Video**

Thanks for reading, and anytime you want an adventure on the river you can call anytime.
