Old Mills…

When I am driving and I see an old mill like this it makes my heart smile. I makes me feel like not all the old past ways are totally gone and that somewhere the old ways are appreciated and preserved in some way. I really enjoy seeing the mill wheels working and the water pushing though the wheel.

There is something soothing about this sound an how it washes out whatever is in your mind for a moment. I miss a lot of what was common to see when my family took drives when I was a child. Seeing something that was more common 25+ years ago is a treat and helps me to know not all is lost in this world gone electronic and fast paced. Is there anything you see from your childhood or young adulthood that is rare to see anymore? What is it and what kind of feelings and memories does it bring back for you?
