Bubbling Fountain



An 83 year old, third generation stone cutter from Quincy created this 11 foot granite fountain in Merrymount Park. Ed Monti, of Monti Granite, uses a high pressure torch to burn the granite stone into shape.

This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday.

Slim, this is simply gorgeous.

That is beautiful. The Monti's made the stone for my Dad's grave at St. Mary's in West Quincy.

Nice photo as always.

It is a nice fountain. I would have liked to see one that people could perhaps wade in. Having grown up in Quincy when using the beach was just taken for granted it is a shame to see it closed down so often. I think that perhaps some sprinkler parks or something similar would be great. Just a thought.
