We are finally Home and Ed has an appointment with a local Hand Specialist on Thursday! As far as I understand he will remove the stitches as well as determine future treatment. Thanks for all of your support!
Ed and I have been visiting this area for a few days now. Some of you have seen my post on FB of Ed in the hospital! It was this breakwater that he fell on. He’s back in the motor home with me now after a two day stay in Penobscot Bay Medical center and he also got the. Hence to see their Operating Room! They put 11 pins in his wrist!
The above link is to the website for the Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth, MA. Ed and I toured the 17th Century English Village and the Wampanoag homesite. We have not been there for many years and it was good to see our history portrayed in this village again. A wonderful day!
Rising above crashing surf and spectacular rock formations, the Pemaquid Lighthouse is a cultural and historical treasure. Each year, about 100,000 visitors come to explore the park grounds, take in the panoramic view of the Atlantic and marvel at one of the state’s best known icons. It is so honored that, in 2003, Maine citizens voted to use its likeness to represent them on the state quarter.
The tower and Keeper’s House were constructed iin 1827. But neither lasted long, perhaps because the builder used salt water to mix his lime mortar. The second contract stipulated that only fresh water be used. The new tower, built by stone mason Joseph Berry from Georgetown, was completed in 1835. A new wood frame Keeper’s House was added in 1857.
At about the same time, the tower was upgraded with new technology: the Fresnel lamp. The beacon that shines today is that same, fourth-order lamp which can be seen 14 nautical miles out to sea.
