Spring Mill Inn

I had decided to get a nice gift for Roger at the marina who made the platform for the new radar dome on the Katy Leigh. We stopped at a liquor store in Richmond, IN for fine bottle of Kentucky bourbon and was told the best stuff was in another liquor store back a mile. We turned around and drove back only to find out the the best was $305 per fifth. Very fine indeed but they were out of it, and there was a waiting list, and new stock rarely came in. I settled for a more modest bottle of Blanton's single barrel that I could have bought in the first store. From Richmond we took back roads to Spring Mill State Park. This is a marvelous campground in a virgin forest with huge tall trees. A CCC project in the 1930's restored the original 1860's grist mill and other buildings and built the Spring Mill Inn. We had a buffet dinner at the Inn and next morning toured the Pioneer Village as it is called.  The grist mill is very interesting with its long flume carrying water to a 26 ft diameter water wheel. All the gears inside are made of wood and the grinding stones came from France. Check out the video below that shows the mill in action . We got to Kenlake at 3:30PM and moved into the boat for the weekend
