    Oh, Guys... just a tribute to how long Ben has been providing such an amazing site... It was around a good bit I guess before I joined and.... My youngest, Jason, who coined my very signature quote when I would take him to the woods at the homestead... My Grandpop was still alive then... that...

    O.K., Just for grins and to further stimulate the curious, I clipped a bit off the historic topo, and since I'm working from that, with some really confident guess work and some basic memory of where the homestead would have fallen... I dropped a little dot, I'll guess pretty darn close to where...

    And I will give you that's a pretty good point guy. Wish I had some input from my childhood on that but while I do actually remember the stones around the bridge, I wasn't exactly pondering why the stones were there back then. As a kid you're thinking about trolls under bridges hiding behind...

    Crap... You are absolutely right Boyd and I forgot. Good catch. Guess it shows I've been away more than a minute. I believe I successfully deleted them. Check me though. g

    If it is any help at all that particular trestle over the Albertson is jest a touch east of the Mill. The Mill was pert much at the bridge give or take. I have that bit of info in a book Jerseyman gifted to me. That also makes a loose reference to the Mill that may have worked off the stone base...

    So Guy, you crafty bugger, got me pining (No pun intended) for the Fleming Pike, the old homestead, and the bridge. I found with some caution, the Fleming Pike of my youth is still pretty traversable. The Bridge, looking from The North and South... Somehow I double clicked those attachments...

    Heeeaaayyy,... Gabe, and Oji, and Old Jersey Girl. Figured I'd pop in. Missed yall. Since I remain an old salty softy below are scenes from Last Saturday at sunset. High tide just a bit before 8 so the timing of a slack tide and water that just simply became glass made for a chance for good...

    Yall may remember back in the day me writing about this and the Alberston creek, the Trestle, and the Mill itself. I am originally from the Fleming pike right down the street where in fact I spent younger years playing all sorts of make believe adventures of the grade school fashion on one of...

    Hope so. Moon was killer the other night. I will be up on the Island watching the fireworks on 68th Street at Ocean Beach. So the moon should be starting it's thing while I am there and doing it's thing as I ride home through the Pine Barrens. I will be passing through New Gretna and on up past...

    Because I am weird, I took a stroll in my upper field last night around 3:00 a.m. it's very open and literally no light pollution. The moon was low and brilliant deep orange/red. Hope someone else saw. It was amazing.

    Ocean Seawater provides another great value. Not just salt water at home. Get down and dirty in the surf or on the water and make short work of the woes of poison ivy and chigger bites. There's always some poison out here waiting to cling to you and the Pestletown Pet, the lovely chigger will...
