On occasion my daughter and I get together for what I refer to as “Mother/Daughter Bonding Day”. It gives us a chance to just spend some time together. We used to do it more often, but we are both busy, so it’s a real treat to get together now.

We drove to Brookville to The Dairy Cottage, home of delicious fried chicken and “jo-jos” – deep fried potato wedges. We each ordered a chicken breast and decided to split an order of cole slaw and jo-jos (of which I ate NONE!) and a Pepsi and then drove to the town park for lunch.

This is a beautiful setting, at the tailwaters of the Brookville Dam. There was a gentle breeze, we sat in the shade and enjoyed hearing the water trickling over a little waterfall while we watched one fly fisherman cast his line – a very bucolic setting. I took a few photos of the day.
You can just set the little ripples of the tiny waterfall (can’t you just hear that water!) and the beginning of the island

Here is the end of the little island

you can just make out a cute little cabin across the stream – I’m sure the homeowners spend a lot of time here in the summer, just listening to the stream and relaxing

farther downstream the water was quite low and you could see the rocks

I WANT a mother-daughter bonding day too!
I will get to see my two daughters on Sept 22nd BUT it will be a family gathering (not just a girl's weekend.
Looks warm too.
Friends write from southern WI it has been 90!
We broke 75 this week which is unusual for us up here.
We will drop like a rock on Thursday. Lows in the 30s.
