This is the Newport Mystery Tower! No one knows fur sure who built it or why, and speculation ranges from its being built by Benedict Arnold to having been built by Norwegians(or other Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contacts) wa-a-a-ay before Columbus set foot here, much less the Pilgrims!
They say that on the Solstice, the sun comes in thru the narrow slots and hits a keystone in the arch on the inside of the tower.
Every year Mom says she's going to go there and watch to see if its true.... and every year she doesn't get there on time. but here's a nice pic the Boy took last Dec. when he was visiting. mom added an arrow pointing to the keystone. Ahhhh..... snow!!!
Doesn't look like we'll get any snow this year, its in the upper 50's today. Hope Santa's sleigh has wheels, too!
woos & a-roos to yous!
