    Constable Bridge

    Spent some time with this today. VERY interesting! Might have to go slog in there soon and check out the bogs. I'm always impressed by the canals they dug and the dams they raised. Men of iron!!!

    Batsto Furnace and Forge?

    Thanks! That's a great map. Lists the site of the glassworks as well, which is pretty interesting. Is there any record of the restoration of Batsto? I understand it has a long history, and they had to make choices. Just wondering how they came to their decisions.

    Am I a Piney Now?

    Thanks! I would appreciate that. It's very pleasant there. Wish there was some water close by, but oh well.

    Am I a Piney Now?

    Looks like this before the blueberry bushes kick in. Tent shouldn't be a problem. Sorry about the double picture. Getting smarter one mistake at a time!!
