Just in case you're wondering, those stone formations along the water's edge are actually Bog Iron. Bog Ore was mined and refined in Southern New Jersey for the production of tools and wrought iron rails, which take
advantage of its natural rust resistance. During the American Revolution, the iron was used for cannon balls for the American colonial forces. Suitable for sitting, you might say we have our very own Bog-Henge!
