After spending the morning on Pigeon Key, which we accessed by boat tour from the visitors center, we walked back to our car along the Old Seven Mile Bridge. At the eastern end of the bridge we noticed a signup stand for Friends of Old Seven, a group that raises funds for the preservation and continued maintenance of the bridge. We talked with the man at the stand for a while and mentioned our interest in survey markers, wondering if he had seen the ones we were looking for. This benchmark, Y 69 RESET, was one of them. He pointed out the survey markers on the eastern abutment. I always appreciate it when people have taken notice of their surroundings and are aware of benchmarks before we tell them! We recovered all three marks. Y 69 RESET is in good condition and is circled with blue paint.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

Recovered in good condition on the north wingwall of the east abutment of Old Seven Mile Bridge.
