Fort Knox

Fort Knox

One morning back in June we found ourselves in Camden picking up Joe's long dreamed of family canoe (he finally found one used, in great condition, at a fantastic price). Unfortunately it was sort of a miserable morning along the coast and with the cold and rain we just couldn't take the new canoe out for a test run. So we spent a little time in Camden and headed home after lunch. But then the weather started to clear a bit and we decided to take a little unplanned detour to visit this incredible bridge and observatory and Fort Knox! It was one of those sweet little side trips that you don't plan that end up being so much more fun than expected!

We could even see our truck (with the new canoe)!

With lots of stairs and tunnels our kids LOVED exploring!

And with all of the pattern and amazing light contrast I LOVED photographing here!

When the kids are a bit older I think it will be a fantastic place to take them back to to learn a little bit more about the history right in our back yard!
