Last night we went on a Ghost Walk at Wildcat Den State Park. It was about ghosts of Pine Creek Gris Mill. At one time Iowa had 500 gristmills which is where early settlers took their grain and had it ground. The grains were corn, wheat, buckwheat and rye.

That is me in the red, I really didn’t need a jacket as the weather was warmer than usual, perfect for a ghost walk.
This photo was inside the Grist mill and was a mother and son talking about the harvest and what foods they would have for the winter. The ghost walk was very interesting and educational.
Here we had a niece visiting her Aunt to learn about herbs and gardening and what you could find each month. I blurred their faces as I didn’t get their names. The final thing on the Ghost Walk was a woman who told a ghost story. Then we had apple cider and popcorn. You could grind corn by hand in the gristmill which I have done before.
Someday we could have a ghost walk at our house. Have you ever seen a tombstone in someone’s front yard? We have a full size one. It was a gift to my parents years ago.
I did some quilting today. The weather has been unbelievable and I had to include a picture I took this afternoon. Lots of people were out boating and enjoying the beautiful weather.
Tomorrow you will see quilting and I will have a AccuQuilt tutorial for you.
