Tuesday's Treasure


This is Sickman's Mill which sits beside the Pequea Creek in Pennsylvania.  We stumbled across it last year on vacation as it offers tubing down the river.  It was great fun. (These were taken from my old camera which was giving me bother)


After tubing for two miles we were bussed back to the mill. The old mill was open for visitors to take a peek into, though there wasn't much to see.  I found this treasure though, an old Singer sewing machine and would have loved to bring it home with me.



But we still treasure the memories...

Linking with Tom's Tuesday Treasures a fun new meme!

    You said that you "tubed for two miles", what does that mean? Is it similar to rafting perhaps? I can't imagine doing what I call "tubing" for two miles!

  12. Tubing is like floating along inside an inflated tractor wheel tube like a big donut! It was so much fun bumping along & then flowing swiftly along with the current! It took about 45 mins to tube the two miles.
    If you go to their website sick mansion.com there are some photos to give you a better idea of it!

  15. When I visited my husband while he was stationed in Sacramento, California, for military training, we used to tube down the American. It was great fun. - Margy
