After our Compost tour we had lunch at Patriot Park in Pigeon Forge. Then we toured the Old Mill.

The girls in front of the bags of flour. They sell all this at the store and they sell at other stores and online too.

After this we went to feed the ducks and pigeons by the river. (I am sure this was the funnest part of the day for most kids.)

This pigeon was really pretty, it had purple and green on it's neck.

This duck was unusually brave. It actually ate out of dd's hand.
