Fort Stark was apparently quite important and busy during WWII. It won't be open for visitors until after Memorial day. People who wrote reviews either loved or hated the fact that the Fort had been benignly neglected.
When I looked to the Northwest, I realized that what I had thought was a big building was actually a ship!
Great Island Common.
The Common is a public park of about 30 acres. There are picnic tables, benches, trees, decks, docks and bbq stands. The day WE were there, there was also a bone chilling wind. So much for Spring! I did one page of sketches and then said adios and returned to the shelter of my car.
We did take time to pose behind this artists' frame.
Because of the time of day, lighting, and prevailing wind, the view below was the "best" I could find. I actually had more fun sketching a painter.
I did realize that I NEED a stool for sketching. Darling Hubby got me one for Mother's Day! Yay. I'm wanting to go back to New Castle and use it! Might even see if there is a Coast Guard Station tour.
