I just noticed this - too late. My friend back east might have liked that. Is this the annual festival that used to be held in Batsto, or is something different?

Batsto Country living fair is still going, it's this Sunday

Thank you! I always liked that event. They used to activate the water mill-driven lumber mill and everything and maybe they still do! I told my friend about it. Maybe she'll go. She remembered that i once bought her a beautiful blue bottle from that Fair. I forgot about that. I have a weakness 4 certain shades of blue.

I think I'm going to check this out tomorrow. I'm friends with author Barbara Solem, and she will be there. She's very knowledgable about Batsto and the Pine Barrens in general.
Tell Barbara hello. The owner of this site (Ben) and I traveled with her and Budd Wilson to Howardsville and Union Clay Works many years ago in Ben's Jeep.

Had a good day, Got there early before traffic backed up.

Sawmill was open but not operating.
