on the towpath

Nearby our house flows the Delaware River. Next to that is the canal. The towpath running along next to the canal was used by mules pulling barges filled with coal in the 1800's. The old inns and locks and all the handbuild stone wall retainers are still in place although the mules are long gone. When we walk there I can hear their plodding footsteps still.
