Hubby took off half a day on Friday and for our anniversary, we headed north to find a mill we haven't seen yet, and a famous trout farm. It was a beautiful drive, some trees were starting to turn and the forest was thick. I love to just take off and drive, seek out new places and explore. This place is Rockbridge, a once booming settlement, now a tourist spot for fishermen. And the fish were plenty, just walking along the river you could see tons of big trout, if caught here can be filleted, bagged and smoked for you right there. They also offer hunting packages and old and new houses to rent. This mill is opened nightly for drinks, sandwiches and just gazing out over the river, they also have a full restaurant where we stopped in for a glass of ice tea. The river was flowing hard, and so pretty! On our way home, we found a little resort where you can rent cabins or tipi's, right on the river. I think next year we will rent a cabin and do a little fishing. All in all, it was a lovely way to spend and celebrate our anniversary. I also found a little ole country church that has been left to rot, once apart of the settlement but now left to the wilds of the foliage that has taken it over, so sad. If you'd like to see more about Rockbridge, check it out here. Till next time, enjoy the rest of this last summer Sunday as fall greets us tomorrow!
