Louisbourg Day 4

Today turned out to be a beautiful day.  The sun was finally shining again.  The little family of cormorants I see on my drive into and out of The Fortress was basking in the sunshine on my way to the Inn.  The mystery has begun.  The artifacts are telling us the story.  Every layer gives us a little more information and a lot of times it adds to the mystery.  The area I worked in today is a mess of brick and stones, we suspect is a collapsed chimney.  I spent most of the day cleaning that up to prepare for overhead pictures in the morning.  The House turned Brewery is suppose to have a double fireplace with enough room for two burners on each side.  We found a pavé slate floor Yesterday, we removed that today to get to the next level.  It’s a tedious process but I find it very grounding.

We think this is a collapsed double fireplace.  The brick and stonework is puzzling.

Here I am, very dirty and tired but in my glory.
