"In Loving Memory Of Mabel"

By conrad
Preston Mill again, from our holiday in Scotland.

See the flowers on the left? There's also a brass plaque there, with the text:

"In loving memory of Mabel. She came here to feed the ducks."

Makes you wonder - did she fall into the pond and drown? Or did she just die of other causes and her family put this plaque up at one of her favourite places?

Anyway. Comments/critique and mods welcome, as always!

I'm sorry for Mabel.
I wonder how many other people have chuckled at the thought of her falling into the pond and drowning!
Looks an interesting mill though
