Red Clay Creek

Route 82 (Creek Road/River Road) from Kennett Square, PA to Yorklyn, DE. This road winds from Pennsylvania into Delaware along the Red Clay Creek past Auburn Heights http://auburnheights.org/ and the Auburn Heights Preserve http://www.destateparks.com/attractions/auburn-heights/ . The Marshall house was built by the owner of National Vulcanized Fiber (NVF) above the mills which turned out vulcanized fiber products that were ultimately superceded by high performance plastics, leaving the mills in ruins and Red Clay Creek polluted. A number of public and private efforts to restore the area for recreational use are making progress.

The ride starts at Kennett Square Specialties http://www.ksssales.com , whose "Highland Oysters" are not what I thought they were.

If you are particularly sharp eyed, you'll catch the turkey vulture who alighted to a tree as I pass a freshly road-killed squirrel on which it was feeding.
