    An 18th century tavern built around 1792.
    It is near a cove which no longer exists after
    it was filled in from dredge spoils.

    I was warned by local security not to cross over the
    railroad tracks off to the right of this building.

    EDIT
    More clues needed apparently.
    Even I had trouble finding it ! :D

    This area was originally known as Steele's Bay, then Stone's Cove, then Fish House Cove.
    Building is said to have been recently renovated ! :hmmmmm Sure don't look like it to me !!!
    It has also been moved from it's original location to this spot.

    Looking at an aerial view there are no houses on the rest of this road,
    only some old oil tanks and out buildings on a dead end.
    So I have no idea why security told us not to go down.
    I asked her if it was private property and she said no, but it is not a good idea to go down there.
    So like a good ADV rider we turned around and stopped at the old tavern.
    She said it was okay on this side of the tracks.

    YES

    How many other Red PC's have you seen around ? :evil

    Had a nice lunch there today after church.

    -------------------------------------------

    I added some more info to my post because my initial clues were pretty much useless ! :puke1

    -------------------------------------------

    Johnpitts, so sorry to hear about the accident.
    People do not pay attention to their surroundings at all anymore.

    -------------------------------------------

    wp, Roebling is bigger than I thought !

    :lol3

    I actually went the wrong way on a one way street.
    If I hadn't I probably would not have found it !!!!!
    How ironic.

    :rofl

    I was on my way back from the Cape May PBGT when I saw the PC at the diner.

    More clues where not necessary, I found it in about 3 seconds. Didn't know that was back there.

    OK, I take all my extra clues back then !!! :lol3

    I was figuring some White Furry Motorcycle Rider would take the Tag down to Cape May today.

    I saw you were down there on Rob's thread.
    Did you take 47N to Union Road (or what ever it is called on the southern end) from Port Elizabeth to Buena?
    That's how I use to get down to Cape May.

    You must have thought it was real small then :lol3

    I'd guess it has one one of the highest tagable things to town size ratio in the state.



    Sorry to hear you got clipped John. What the heck have you done to antagonize female drivers so much?

    Walt I wish I knew. Maybe it's the opposite. Maybe I am invisible to women, they don't even notice me. :lol3

    So, did I scare everybody away from this Tag ?

    :fpalm

    If you go check out the grave of our Mr. Labor Day founder just up the street.
    In the other direction .... on the good side of the tracks !

    I had to get back to work by 12:30 in Edison. So, check the time stamps and figure out where the tag is located.

    Or PM me, and I'll send you the GPS coordinates! 70 degrees out there, boys and girls!:D
