No Spitting in the Kitchen
Here's more about Fort Clinch. There's a lot of bricks in this fort, even the floors. Reminds me of some kilns I've seen.
There are daily tours with period re-enactments. There's a lot of history in these walls.
The rooms were cool despite the warmer temperatures outside, probably because the buildings are earth sheltered on one side. Simple brick buildings and simple furnishings.
Can you imagine doing laundry with a washboard in an old oak barrel? Without television, computers, or telephones, there was more time for the necessary daily chores.
The cook put up a sign saying "No spitting in the kitchen". For more about Fort Clinch see the previous post.
