The tranquility of island living...


The peace... the quiet... the sound of the jackhammer right outside our door!


Yes, the cement guys did show up.  I went next door and apologized to the neighbors for what is going to be a very noisy few days.  Joan said, "Do you suppose the guy running the jackhammer drew the short straw?"

This is what they do.  And sometimes, you have to work on a Saturday.  The original plan was to start the dock construction yesterday, so we are already behind... not that we have a schedule.  In the meantime, we are a bit of an eyesore...


When done, the dock will have all composite planking and white railings to match the house.  Oh, and a new cement cap on the seawall.

I know you are a bit of a stickler sometimes, so…concrete cap. (sorry, it's the engineer in me.)

Moi? A stickler? All righty - concrete it is! :-)

Cement is what you would use on a tooth cap!

I grew up in a rough neighborhood - there was talk of "cement boots"... never heard anyone talk about concrete boots. ;-)
