Well, I think it’s time for another quiz.  Shall we?  Here are your clues:

That’s right — there aren’t any!  Cindy says I’ve been too easy on you guys and that you should work to savor this one.  So have at it.  As usual, the only rules are keep it civil and have fun.

UPDATE:  Tillerman won this yet AGAIN!  But I have to say, I think the time is coming when he won’t be the winner for the majority of the quizzes.

Yes, this is the hot shot furnace (outside of the fort; because fire, red hot cannon balls, and gunpowder make for a truly explosive mix) for the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida.

      Things here are well, and there’s talk of an improvement in drought conditions.

      Now that I’ve nailed the location, I’ll let Tillerman figure out exactly what it is.

      Ding, ding, ding — YES!!!

      It’s the hot shot furnace there at Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. But it’s OUTSIDE of the fort. The fort was built 1672-1696, and the shot furnace was built by the US Army in 1844.

    For something that’s not a fort, it has a remarkably fort-like appearance, right down to the cannon.

    I was going to guess that it was the Castillo de San Marcos pizza oven.

      She’s a quick study, Tillerman. Give her time and I think you’ll be the one glaring at her, arms crossed, foot taping, and hissing her name under your breath. 😀
