Old Mill Restaurant AUGUST 26

We stopped for a heavy lunch at the Old Mill Restaurant on route 2A in Westminster, Mass.

I thought I'd pay, but I check my sugar when home and it was 112, not bad and actually better than most morning checks.

Brocolli and squash came with the meal.  There was much too much food to eat.

The place itself is very picturesque.  There is a huge pond that flows over a waterfall




and then meanders off as a stream.



Ducks fill the pond and in the distance white geese.
