This was the destination we were headed to.



Ringing Rocks Park in Bucks County, PA.

I had a hard time finding on the internet exactly where the entrance was to this place.
But it had to be on Ringing Rocks Road !



So, once I found the parking lot we needed to find the trail !

There are no signs or maps to show the layout of the park.

The parking lot is not huge so a short walk around and the trail shows up.



It is the only trail out of the parking lot and is nicely marked by a sign that says "TRAIL".



The trail first leads to what they call a field of boulders.
Some guy was blocking this one.



This one looked clear.



But it is very difficult to get around because of this.

ROCKS !



And MORE rocks !



That was looking ahead of where we were, this was looking to our left.



I stood up on a big rock and got a little further view.



Navigation of the seven acres of rock is difficult.



Why is it called Ringing Rocks?
Well, when the rocks are struck they ring.
Now I was thinking they would sound like a bell by the way people were describing it.

When you hit a rock with a hammer normally you get a Thunk, Thunk, Thunk sound.
When you strike these you get a short Tinggg Tinggg Tinggg sound.
Kind of like striking two hammers together.
But not all of the rocks make the sound !
And no one seems to know why they ring and also why other do not.

One guy collected back in the 1800's different pitched rocks and made music.
They say that was the first Rock Concert!



So everyone comes armed with a hammer.



Here is a nice writeup and pictures by David's Photographic Tour of Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

A little more information on Visit Philadelphia.

Information on Wikipedia.

Here is a video from Ringing Rocks Park showing the ringing and the variety of sounds you can make with these rocks.

The park is a Bucks County Park and not a State Park.
I will mark the parking lot entrance on my map so you do not have to guess where it is like I did.
The rocks are clearly seen on satellite view.

Also located here is Bucks County's highest waterfall.

There are also no signs for how to get to that.

Just keep following the trail past the rocks.



The trail is pretty easy, but you have to watch for the many rocks and tree roots sticking out.



Several large trees had fallen over.
I was surprised at how shallow and how few roots were holding this big tree up.
The soil underneath has a reddish color to it and looks like it has a high content of clay.



A nice rock planter.



And finally the falls.



Yes, there is water going over that.
It is at the middle bottom of the picture.

I was amazed at how flat and wide the river bed was.
I would think this would look great after a good rain storm.
You can see some good sized trees laying around which had to come over the falls.
There is a good drop off from the upper layer to the lower layer.

The falls are said to be 30 feet high, so that should be how high that drop off is.



People were walking all over.
I never did see a Park Ranger.
No railings or signs or anything.
Which I thought was pretty nice, but can be dangerous.

The flat wide riverbed sloped to the right, so that is why all of the water is flowing along that side.

I did climb down, which was not easy.
It is the only way to get a good view of the falls.





Even with out a lot of water the geography was very interesting.
I would not be standing here if more water was coming over the falls.

Looking down stream the flat wide riverbed continues.
There was a curved section that dropped off and looked pretty neat.





I know it does not look as impressive in the pictures.
But with some people in the picture you can get a better idea of the size of this nice natural amphitheater.



So it was time to start climbing back up to the trail.



Ahhhhhhh, New Jersey !!!!!!

OH, Wait, ..... I am in Pennsylvania !





This was the only waterfall I could find in the area.
the other ones were a lot further North.

Here is BucksCounty.org with a winter picture of the falls.

Here is another nice winter picture on Panoramio.

Here is a picture with a lot of water coming over the falls, but it is not very big.

So that is Ringing Rocks Park in Upper Black Eddy, Bucks County, PA.

A nice place to visit with some interesting stuff to see.

I know you like this town too Ben.



This is an old Odd Fellows Hall from 1889 in Cranbury.

Nice sign.



And I concur !


They must have had a run or walking event here in Cranbury.
We were here on Sunday afternoon, on Father's Day.





The blue sign was right where I wanted to park.
But beings I was on a motorcycle I shared the space.



This building is for sale actually.

Some interesting history on richardgrubb.com.
"In 1889 the Middlesex Lodge No. 90 of the International Order
of the Odd Fellows constructed the Cranbury Odd Fellows Hall.
Local fraternal organizations, including the Freemasons, the
Eastern Star, and the Lady May Rebekah Lodge, also used the
second floor meeting room into the late 1900s."

They have a picture of this building from 1936, but it does not look any different.
Except today it is in color !



I had never looked into the Odd Fellows before.
They do have a website and their official name is Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
Their history and name are quite interesting and I had wondered how they got their name:
"The Independent Order of Odd Fellows began in 18th Century England, it was
deemed odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in
need without recognition and pursuing projects for the benefits of all mankind."
They follow the motto of: Friendship, Love and Truth, which is what the three chain links stand for.

Information about Odd Fellows on Wikipedia.

I had taken the next day off from work to visit friends of ours who's son had graduated college.
They were staying in Wildwood, NJ.

Pictures of that later !

I do not like dropping Tags at the shore during the summer because of the crowds.
But I had a place on the way I had been wanting to do.



I thought this was just a nice old house with a fancy color motif.
But it turns out this is an historic building in Dennisville.



I am not so sure the color is historic, but I could be wrong.





I had seen this sign the previous times I was here and I thought it was for the house, but it did not make sense.



Until I saw this in the back yard.



There are other antique shops along this road in this small town.

This is the back of the house.





Nice front door.



The Nathanel Holmes House from 1810.





And this is Nathaniel Holmes Privy !



Also an historic building !





Information about the construction on the Library of Congress, Historic American Buildings Survey.

The Holmes family is a well known local family and this house was built for the patriarch of that family.

And Nathaniel Holmes Privy on the same site. ............ HONEST !

Some more pictures inside and out, on ancientfaces.
Which shows the house was probably painted white originally.

Wildwood, NJ

Not my favorite place during the summer.
But I was surprised at how few people were here.
Although we were here on a Monday and now I am told it gets really crowded after school lets out.
So we had a nice time in spite of my preconceptions.



Here is what I found interesting.
Which will be broken up into several posts, and you know why!













There is the old and the new.
This was a nice throwback sign.



An interesting new water park sign.



Different water park.





This nice whale mural was done by the same artist as the one I posted back on page 76.
This one was done in 1993 and also signed Wyland.







If you road a Neon Lime Green Bike like this anywhere else you would be laughed off the street.
But it is perfectly acceptable Down the Shore.



WATCH THE TRAM CAR PLEASE !



These things ride up and down the boardwalk.
You can ride one for $3.00 one way.



The same sign I posted on page 26.



And here we reached the Southern end of the Wildwood Boardwalk.
The next town south is Wildwood Crest.

We had walked most of the Boardwalk South to the end.
Wildwood Crest has a cement bike path and goes almost 1 mile.

The Boardwalk in Wildwood is almost 2 mies long.
The Tram Car rides on the boards.

North Wildwood also had a cement path for walking and also looks like it is used as a Sea Wall.
That is about 1 mile long and goes pretty much to the Northern end of the island.

The pictures in the previous post were walking South.
I took more pictures walking back North !



The start of the Southern end of the Boardwalk.







One of several Amusement Piers along the Boardwalk.



This painting was made for Bobby Rydell who sang "Wildwood Days".
Here is a YouTube video of that song with some "vintage" beach pictures.





A nice old neon ice cream cone sign.



Frankie Avalon getting an ice cream cone from Kohr Brothers.



I really, ..... REALLY wanted to stay and get some night pictures of these signs all lit up.
But we had to leave before I could do that.
I would need a tripod anyway, which I did not have.
So I guess another trip needs to be made !











I don't know how I missed some of this stuff walking past it the first time !



Mack's is said to be the best pizza on the Boardwalk.



I found out where Hulk Hogan retired to !







A nice old sign at Curley's Fries.





One of the rides people were screaming on !



Don't feed them, they just take what they want,.... right out of your hand if necessary !



And thus we reach the North end of the Wildwood Boardwalk of Fame and Happiness !





Going through the Arch of Happiness.



The other side welcomes you as you become one of The Happiest People In The World.



Wildwood has been around for quite a while.
Officially becoming a borough in 1895 its popularity as a seaside resort started at
the same time the Garden State Parkway was being constructed from 1952-56.

Cape May was the previous hot spot at the shore down in the peninsula of New Jersey.

Wildwood Historical Museum has a lot of great old pictures and plenty of tabs with more information.
Check out their "Historical Wildwood Videos" under the "Our Island" tab at the top left.

The Tram Cars used in Wildwood were the ones built for the 1939 Worlds Fair in New York City.
In 1949 Gilbert Ramagosa bought five of them to use on the Boardwalk.
And now they are an iconic part of Wildwood, NJ.

Wikipedia

And another great website called Hometown Wildwood.

However, no one seems to know, or want to share what they know, about how Wildwood got its name !

It was originally named Five Mile Beach. Probably because the island is that long North to South.
1870 - brought about fishermen coming to the island and calling it Anglesea.
1874 - brought about Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, page 18.
1880 - Aaron & Sarah Andrews (whose health brought them here) were shown land by John Burke, a realtor
from Vineland, NJ. They later joined with Nelson Robert, Latimer Baker, and Robert Young, and in 1885
the Holly Beach City Improvement Co. was founded and Holly Beach Borough was incorporated.
1881 - three Burke brothers bought land north of Holly Beach and created the Wildwood Beach Improvement Co.
(Hard to believe this island was covered with trees at one time.)
1900 - The first Boards were laid out right on the sand and 1903 brought the first elevated boardwalk as we know it today.
1912 - Holly Beach and Wildwood companies merged and created Wildwood.

The center of the Boardwalk is close to Schellenger Ave, so I will put that location on my map.

Turns out that 1/2 mile of the Boardwalk is actually in North Wildwood.

Yes, they do divide the towns up down here.
And they each have their own unique character.

North Wildwood's Beach Patrol is right at the beach !
Which makes sense of course !



They have several of these old Beach Patrol Life Boats you can sit in for picture opportunities.



The number is for 13th Avenue.
We had other friends staying around in this area so we got together and sat on the beach for a while.



Over the dunes is the beach in North Wildwood.



Looking North.



Looking South.



Wildwood has some of the widest beaches in New Jersey.
You can fit a lot of skin on these sands.

I don't much like the beach.
You get sand everywhere, even if you do not touch it.
I had it on my neck !

Plus I burn pretty easily so I felt like a piece of bacon in a hot frying pan !



Not much wave action going on here today.

The beach patrol out doing their job.
Thank you.



Everyone was wanting to see a nice sunset at Sunset Beach in Cape May.
I posted pictures here on page 32.

And the Concrete Ship S.S. Atlantus on page 80.

But clouds were covering the horizon so this was as good as it got.



The ship on the horizon is one of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry boats.
The black rhombus on the left is the S.S. Atlantus.



We left around 10:30 and we were home at Midnight.
Took a shower to get the rest of the sand off and went to bed.

And thus ended a nice long day at the beach.

I was able to get out and ride again this weekend.

This is not normal for me to be able to ride pretty much every weekend.
Then again, I have stuff piling up around the house that needs to be done !



First stop on Saturday, after taking care of some other business, was finding this memorial.



The address is listed as Mannington.
Like Mannington Flooring Mills, which ironically is located here !
Or perhaps that is not such a coincidence !

I also did not realize that Mannington Township was so big.
Then again, I had never heard of Mannington Township, NJ before !

Fenwicks Grove Memorial.



The other side explains why this memorial is here.



So I was wondering if Major John Fenwicke is buried right here in this little triangle between roads.

And just how much land did this guy own, because we are about 6 1/2 miles from the town of Salem, NJ.

I had also never heard of New Jerssie mentioned as New Cessaria before either !
Although back in the day this was considered West Jersey.

I like the basis of his government.

1. The defense of the royal law of God, His Name and true worship, which is in spirit and in truth.

Sounds familiar.
Sounds like America was settled by different people for the same reasons.

2. The Good, Peace and Welfare of every individual person.

Makes two great foundations.

I found the name of the road interesting, especially in light of the inscription on the memorial.



Compromise Road forks off to the left here off of Route 45.
NJ-45 is the road between Woodstown and Salem.
It looks like Compromise Road may have been part of an older road between the two towns.

I saw what looked like an older foundation below the memorial.
And I had also noticed that it looked like there had been plaques on here at one time.
You could see four spots that looked like where they were glued on.



Then I saw this on the other side which I did not see at first.



So this has been restored.

What is nice out here in Salem County is the vast amount of farmland you still see.



Hence, The Garden State !

And I must say, the roads my GPS took me on to get here were great.

An easy read on Waymarking about John Fenwick, which states that he is indeed buried near this memorial.

Information about Salem County including of course John Fenwick and a picture of his signature and seal, which still exists.

If you are into history here is a great, long, reading on the Early History of Salem County, New Jersey.

And this is considered the first English Settlement along the Delaware River.
The Dutch and Finns were here shortly before Fenwick and further up the Delware River.

I had just read about this tiny Jewish Synogague and I had wanted to see it.



It is called Garton Road Shul.



As best I can tell this was built in 1890 by Russian Jews who came to America for the same reasons as John Fenwick.

It is located on Garton Road.
A Shul is another name for a Synagogue.
More specifically it is a Yiddish word for School.
And according to the article I linked below it was used for both purposes.







There was a crack in the vinyl siding which showed an asphalt shingle siding underneath.
And seeing an older picture of this building shows it was once dark with light trim.



Pictures of the inside were difficult.



I looked in the right front window and saw narrow stairs.



I had been wondering about the height of the building and the curious high window on the front and the ones on the sides near the front.

Turns out that the stairs lead to a balcony covered by a curtain and that is where the women would sit.
The Israelites always had separate areas for the Priests, then the men, then the women, and then for the Gentiles, so I did not find this unusual when I read it.

Here is a great read by the Jewish Federation of Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties which gives the entire history of this unique old building.

Here is another nice article by West Jersey Time Traveler.

A website called Lemon Lime Moon with a section on Tiny Synagogues of New Jersey has a picture of this building before the vinyl siding.
He has this Synagogue located in Rosenhayn, which it is very close to.
It currently has a mailing address of Bridgeton.

After church on Sunday, and a short nap ! I road to Salem again.

I road right past Mr. Fenwick on the way.

I went to see this recreation of an early Swedish Cabin.







This cabin is not that old and is rotting apart, even above ground,
so it is no wonder none of the early buildings in New Jersey survived.
Termites love this stuff !



The sign above the door says Brown's Cabin.
But I could not find any information about a Mr. Brown in Salem.



A replica well.



And very shallow.
And I sure would not want to drink out of it !





The back of the cabin.



I tried taking a picture of the inside through a big gap in the logs to see if the floor was dug out, but I could not tell.
It looks like an eye is looking back at me in the center of the picture !



The information they have posted at the cabin.
Sorry, but the right edge of the paper was warped and unreadable, but you can decipher it pretty easily.



When I looked this up it was listed as Johan Printz Park Log Cabin.



I was not aware that most of the town of Salem, NJ is considered an Historic District !

Plenty of history down here.



Salem, NJ is full of old interesting houses from many different time periods.



This cabin is just south of Fenwick Creek.





I found a little information in a book called The Delaware Adventure on pages 57 & 58.
It states that Johan Printz was a most important Governor of New Sweden and also has a picture of this cabin with grass on the roof.

Art and Architecture of New Jersey also has a grass roof picture of this cabin with a sign out front that says Ivy Point.
They also state this was built in 1988 on the 350th anniversary of the settling of New Sweden.

And some good information about Johan Printz on Wikipedia.

I am a little confused about the history of Salem when you throw Johan Pritz into the mix.

The town of Salem, NJ was laid out by John Fenwick in 1675.
Fenwick was an English Quaker.
Johan Printz was a Governor of New Sweden from 1643 to 1653.
Printz was Swedish and led an interesting and mobile life in his earlier years to places like Germany, Austria and Denmark.
From what I can gather New Sweden was mostly in what is now the State of Delaware centered at Fort Cristina which would be just East of Willmington, DE.
But their land seemed to also encompass parts of what are now Philadelphia and some of South Jersey.
He even built himself a two story log home on Tinicum Island in the Delaware River just south of present day Philadelphia.
But there seems to be no mention of Johan Printz in Salem, NJ history, except for this replica cabin.
The Dutch were already in much of Southern New Jersey at this time in what is now Gloucester and Camden Counties.

I did not realize why they built forts except for protection from the Native Americans, except that
the Dutch and Swedish settlers were both friends with the local natives, but apparently not with each other.

Then the English arrived and settle Salem !

I forgot to mention that on my ride down to Salem I had a close encounter with a deer !



I was riding down the road minding my own business when I see this light brown blur in the shape of a deer to the front right of my bike.
And I mean it was a blur !

I was looking ahead to a traffic light.
I never saw the deer cross the road.
But I doubted it could make that kind of about face on asphalt.
It must have been coming towards me from my front right and saw me and made a swift left turn.
It didn't slip on the pavement, which was good, because it would have fallen right in front of me.

I never did see it go anywhere either !

I saw the blur and it was gone just as fast.

I wanted to publicly thank God that He protected me.

That would have been really bad to hit one at about 45 MPH.

And I know it was close because I could hear it's hooves on the pavement !

Next stop was Quinton's Bridge.



Yes, way down here there was a Revolutionary War Battle.



Actually this is not that far out of the way when you consider Philadelphia is just up river and both sides were foraging for provisions.

I am standing on the Southern side of Alloways Creek.
The bridge is NJ-49.



Which looks more like a river down here.
This is looking Eastish up river.



This is looking West down river.



There is no crossing this section of the creek without a bridge or a boat.

Just South of the creek is a monument I had on my list of things I wanted to see.



I was curious as to what those two posts with rings on them were for.



The monument behind gives some more facts about the battle here and the men involved.





Always good to remember those who served faithfully and bravely during such times.

There is a small parking lot by the creek, and that is where I parked.



This had been a recent Tag too, so I got a picture of the sign with my bike in it.



Barely !

Information on Revolutionary War New Jersey, Quinton.

Information on the battle here on Discover Salem County.
It states that 1,000 British Regulars and Hessians with 500 Tories attacked 300 Salem Militia.
But believe it or not the 300 held out and the British moved down river to Hancock's Bridge.
I posted pictures from Hancocks Bridge on page 15 and also page 58.
