Richard and I met up with our friends Jerry and Sherry a couple of weeks ago in Clarkesville, Georgia. One of the places we visited while there was the Mark of the Potter shop, located at the old Grandpa Watts Mill.
The mill harnessed its power from the Soque River.
I didn’t take any pictures inside the pottery shop. The views on the balcony distracted me. If you have read my About Me page, you know this would be a perfect location for my dream home. Something about rivers and creeks and trees and mountains just says home to me.
The fish are well fed here. Put a quarter in the machine, toss the food in the water, and let the feeding frenzy begin.
But don’t even think about having a feeding frenzy of your own.
Sherry and I hadn’t seen each other in over a year, so we had a great time catching up.
Bits of the old mill machinery can still be seen in the bowels of the building. Wouldn’t you like some of this rusty goodness in your home?
It was a beautiful day for soaking up the sunshine and the scenery.
There seem to be conflicting stories on how Soque is pronounced. Sok-wee, so-kwee, soak, or squee. How would you pronounce it?
Stay tuned as I share pictures from our visit to Tallulah Gorge State Park. We were fortunate to visit when Georgia Power released water from the dam. You won’t want to miss those.
