A few miles north of where the Acushnet River meets Buzzards Bay, the long-silent massive brick mills have once again fallen silent, as the projects to renovate them into loft apartments, studio condos, and yet more little shops await a freshened economy. The shoreline is littered with decaying pilings, rusting fences, piles of pallets and broken concrete. A geotrasher would barely know where to begin!




The original plan was to take off early after lunch on a REALLY slow school day, and head west for 2012-11-20 41 -71; but an unexpected errand to the east meant I would be PAID to drive towards this hashpoint....but without pausing to announce same.


I wandered around one end of a curious brick building only to find chain link fence running down into the water. A hole in the fence led to more broken glass and poison ivy than seemed worth wading through. Around the other end of the building was long concrete wall - but it was broken down at the north end, giving easy access to a gravelly patch of low weeds and the hashpoint of desire.
