Tonight, Hubby's going to the swamp....

....wonder if any gators will be home?

  "Swamp" photo I took last summer.
Below is the grist mill, now sadly neglected, 
that the water use to feed.

It looks like a really neat area, kinda' scary with the gators and all -- but still neat.

i love swamps - the kind we have here are free of gators and cottonmouths and that sort of stuff but they aren't as expansive either. steven

What an wonderful looking place, though one has to be on the watch for things that move about. I can only imagine the critters that live there. You don`t see swamps like that here,

Jerry: it was blissfully pleasant that day. But I KNOW they were out there looking back. :)

steven: the wildest thing I discovered is all that green stuff I thought was algae was actually tiny leafed weeds! Gators I don't mind but you can keep the poisonous snakes...and we have a couple of those breeds!

Bill: you and steven are making me wonder why I haven't been to Canada yet. Well, except for that one time, for 2 hours, to see your side of Niagra Falls. :P)

Fabulous photos?

Grist mill? Grist to the mill? I can feel fogs clearing.

Titus said...

Oops. Ignore that first question mark. They are fabulous photos.

What a cool looking place! I believe that green stuff is called duckweed. At least, that is what we get up here on ponds and such and yes, it is tiny leafed plants!

Titus: it's okay, when I was a kid I thought it was a "Grits mill"...because corn is ground into a hot breakfast cereal concoction that only southerners seem to like to eat. :)

But you could also use it to grind corn finer, into cornmeal. Something you can add to your wash day list. ;)

Ponita: you're right! I just couldn't remember the name of it.
