I guess this is where the soldiers did their book training.
Luxury accommodations. There was a similar room down the way but those mattresses were tied up neatly, with the blanket on top and a little pillbox hat on each pile.
Comes with a private bath.
I love these windy stone staircases, as long as there are no spiders.
This is billed as the Infamous Ross Rifle. The top brass thought they were great but the soldiers thought they were too long, heavy and unwieldy.
The earliest pistols in the collection, from the late 1700’s. “Name your second sah!”
Bayonets. A nice serrated one there. It gives me the heebie jeebies.
This is the parade square outside the entrance to the fort. This is the Battery Bistro. I will have to look at the menu, because it looks like a lovely place to do lunch.
There is a coffee shop and the bistro, a potter and jeweller’s, an art gallery and a sweet shop, which I, amazingly, resisted. I believe you can come into this part of the fort for free. It’s kind of a neat place to just hang out.
