An Irish man selected the location of a new fort on 20 August 1775. Yesterday was the 239th anniversary of this event. I wore my new bowler. My attempts to tie my bow tie failed, but luckily I had a regular tie in my vest pocket.

A mariachi band was playing. I want a pair of mariachi pants.


The quince is almost ripe. 


A big crowd arrived for the birthday ceremony.

Flag ceremony.

I wandered into the 1860s-1870s house that contains the gift shop and museum and acted as tour guide for a handful of people. One young woman thanked me profusely, "This is so interesting!"
