Right off the bat we encountered the dilemma facing old barns in
Merritt Family Farm
Not to despair, we journeyed on to find 12 barns. Along the way we also found a Masonic Lodge dating from 1818, a boatyard with many decaying wooden boats, good eats (how about an Ahi Tuna pizza and a grilled cheese smoked salmon sandwich at the Fisherman Restaurant), great views of the coastline with mega boulders, quaint little communities, and most of all helpful people interested in the Barn Survey when we told them about it.

So here are glimpses of the barns we found. If you know of additional information on the barns identified here or additional barns, please comment so we can follow up for the delight and education of us all.
