Jali update

imageHere’s my update.  I’m relaxing at a friends today.  I love my new/old 18th century petticoat pocket.  It’s perfect as a knitting bag. I bought it at the gift shop at Fortress Louisbourg.  It’s made by the handcrafting Guild.  Getting lots of knitting done while I’m down and out.

Louisbourg Day 5

We had a day of preparing the site for recording.  We did overhead photos to map the site.  The Archeologists surveyed all three open sites and then we did some research.  Finding stonework similar to what we found at the site has been a challenge.  The many fireplaces that have been reconstructed on site do not have the same pattern of stonework.  There’s the mystery.  I’ll have to wait for answers unfortunately.  I ended my week as I usually do at Kennington Cove.  Here’s a few pics:

Took a little hike up on top the Fortress Wall to get a view of the site.

Every year I something new, depending on what's in bloom, as a protected site, you can often see something beautiful.
