My Halloween Day

It has been a busy Halloween inside the Coffey Pot. We started off the day with Bug making and hanging Halloween decorations.

Below is the front door.  We bought the door cover, but Bug did all the rest and in the yard.

Bug thought we needed a skeliton on our For Sale sign.

Here is Miss Bug with her mail box ghost

Happy Ghost

Some ghost under our corner tree.

Then we went to Rope Mill Park for a little nature walk. From before the Civil War into the twentieth century there was a rope mill along side the Little River. It was located across the river from the main part of the park.

This is looking down the paved mile and a half trail.

J-Man and Bug standing in the dry river bed.  In the summer, the river is up to their waist.

The mill was across the river at the point. The left fork is where the water for the water wheel came out. What's left of the damn is up river.

This is the bridge support that lead to the mill.

Again, J-Man and Bug standing in the river bed.

Here's the Studmister bravely crossing the log over the creek - without a parachute or a safety net.

Me again with my Tootsie Roll Pop in my mouth.

This the remains of the dam and the enterance to the sluce.

The little shits resting along the river.  Aaah to be that young again.

Then we made it home and are now answering the door to all the little goblins out there.

I hope your day was a great as mine.

I love taking walks by the river and walks through the wood, way better than I like taking walks around my hood.

I'm glad you had such a nice HALLOWEEN!
