Day Three….Vickery Creek Bridge

Since I’m traveling for the next several days, I’ve switched to watercolor so I could paint on the go. My original day 3 painting is at home waiting to be finished…but that’s for another day!

This painting is of a favorite spot in Roswell, Vickery Creek. On the banks of Vickery Creek, you can find the ruins of the Roswell Manufacturing Co Mills, which was built in 1839, but it was burned in 1864 by the Union forces during the Civil War. After the war, it was rebuilt and was used until it was destroyed in 1926. This covered pedestrian bridge over the creek connects the walking trail that begins at Old Mill Park to the Chattahoochee River trail system.

If you haven’t been, you should put Vickery Creek in your list of places to visit. My kids enjoy hiking along the trail to reach the waterfall for a fun swim, and a picnic on the rocks.
