    Friends had mentioned the beauty of the bluebonnets in their state so I decided to Google where I could see them near me. Lo and behold, I came upon the Riverbend Park in Fairfax. What a fantastic find! We arrived around 1 PM and had to wait about 15 minutes because the park was full. I was amazed to see how many large groups were enjoying the facility and picnic area on Easter 2021. The majority of the group participants did not wear masks. On the bluebell flower trail along the river some wore masks while other did not. It seemed tome young people and teenagers opted NOT to wear a mask. The riverside hike was quite scenic and relatively easy to traverse. There are some parts of the trail that are not conducive to anyone with mobility issues. There are porta-potties on the grounds of the Visitor Center as well as clean bathrooms that follow social distancing guidelines. Besides the bluebonnet trail, my favorite part was sitting on the deck and enjoying the view as well as people watching. This is a great day escape.

    There is not a lot there but a working 19th Century mill - but that is an early technological marvel. There have been regular tours, and occassionally they actually operate it. There is also an old country store - pretty much authentic, with a small amout of things to buy. Check for current status.

    The surrounding park is quite nice with a few picnic tables.

    Randomly spotted the Great Falls Wine Outlet during several drive-bys in Great Falls at the intersection of Colvin Run Mill and Walker Road. So, I decided to check it out...and I was pleasantly surprised!!!

    This place has a wine bar with wine tasting and they sell FRESH BREAD and Excellent Cheeses!!!

    The staff was VERY Warm and FRIENDLY. Unlike some wine stores/bars, they were not strict on when things started or ended. They were all about CUSTOMER SERVICE! Got love that!

    Final surprise, you typically expect some pricing in Great Falls to be a rip-off or pricey, but this location was VERY REASONABLE and even had the BEST, LOWEST Prices on some wines!!!

    WOW!!!

    I am coming back here -- AGAIN!!!
