Below: The tallest watchtower at the fort is on the corner facing the outlet to the Atlantic Ocean. Brian chose this as his first RV trip because he loves history so he really explored every available nook and cranny. (Of course, Karen and Lee did not know that they would be unable to ever bring Brian on another trip.) Damn Douglas Lively!
