Yeah, we've got some batteries down in Jersey. THey put them up to protect the Delaware river. Thankfully we never had to use them.

Sorry about the Size. I should have re-sized them before.

Can you post any Photo's PBNA-Boosher? These protected Portsmouth Harbor from Pre Revolutionary, Civil War to WW2.
Here is Fort McClary and across the Bay Fort Constitution also in Kittery ME. & Portsmouth N.H.

JV_44Wubke... Massachusetts... But my mother was from New Sharon. I have relatives Wilton, York and Louiston.
My wife and I go up to York a lot except for in the summer. We like the fall and spring better.

Unfortnately, no, I can't. The only reason I know about them is because my father likes to ride his bike in the rural areas of NJ and PA. He normally rides the 100+ miles to my grandparents house in the summer when we visit. It takes him about 6 hours, but one day when he crossed the river he came across this old man fishing off of what looked like a fortified posiion. The old man lived in the area and explained that the positions he was fishing off of were WW2 aerial batteries to fend off attacking German bombers.

When I do feel like the occasional lobster, Capt'n Newicks is good in South Portland and there is one in Portsmouth NH too

But we get them cheaper down here in Worcester than I can when I'm up in Maine.
Bob's is a Ritual though even if they do have Great Food... been going there since the 60's.
