|The Brewster Mill and Herring Run|
One thing I've been wanting to do for years is to bike to the Brewster Grist Mill. I fondly remember visiting it as a kid, during my aunts' "Upper Class Tour of the Lower Cape" adventures. My usual rides are no longer than 15-20 miles and according to the map, this was over 27 miles round trip. But this year, I was determined to make it (and I can hear all of my PMC friends laughing at this - only 27 miles?!?).
I pedaled into a headwind (which made for an easier ride home!), took one wrong turn but eventually made it to my destination. The mill, mill pond and herring run doesn't cover a lot of area, but it's pretty and relaxing, even on an overcast day. The mill was closed for the season, so I couldn't go in, though I could peek in the windows. Besides, it's more fun to walk the grounds and I had the whole place to myself. I love the sound of running water and everything was so wonderfully green. Now that I know I can get here, I'll have to do it again next year.
