Catch Up Day

Today is a day off for the Heidelberg crew. Along with the rest of the
PTAP team and our volunteers we put in three hard days of fieldwork so
it was a well earned break.

I took the students down to Point Lookout State Park where Rob Jones
was kind enough to provide us with guided tours of the Civil War fort
and prison, the lighthouse, and the park museum. These sites are not
yet open for the season so we appreciate Mr. Jones' willingness to
accomodate us.

The students are enjoying some time on the beach of the park as I
type. Our next stop is a quick lunch before a visit to Historic Saint
Mary's City, which is nearby Point Lookout. There Silas Hurry will
give us a special tour of their lab facilities.

Tomorrow we will be back to work in downtown Port Tobacco. The goal is
to shovel test the village green across from the courthouse.

Friday we are back on the road to return to Heidelberg. Classes resume
on Monday.
