Looking Back From Last November.


Mud- November 2020

It’s been about a yearish since we started to dig into the, well, dirt. Mud and stuff. Piles of wood, gravel, tons and tons of it. But slowly but surely it’s getting a little more, more, I don’t know what more? It’s just more Railway-ish with a little curb appeal. The trick all along has not to overdo it, which of course I have. Everything is art directed.

Some gravel over mud

Mr B is always supervising

Sunrise December 2020

More gravel, filling in over the dirt next to the railway – this was a dry day. Spring. March ish

Slab in.

Trees out, Office painted

More gravel,

Last month, filling in and planting sea grass

Trees planted, mulch.. Beds edged with old telephone poles

After the flood

And of course the sketch of the future. Once plants grow in, and a new deck on the office. This is how I have been visualizing it all. With rough sketches.

The plan

Stay tuned, today is ROADTRIP day. 12 hrs of but numbing driving. I hope Mr B has learned to drive better.. he gets easily distracted. SQUIRREL!

    I realize that this a bit off subject, and I have posted this before. Today November 10 is the date in history, that the sinking of the 730 foot Great Lakes freighter Edmund Fitzgerald happened Those of us who have boated on the Great Lakes for many years, remember her well. Please keep the family of her 29 crewmen who perished in your thoughts and prayers today. Thankfully no disasters such as this has occurred on the Great Lakes in the last 46 years.

    Mr B did a great job of supervising. I knew Mr B could do it.

    We will be RVing in Virginia Beach from March 21 thru the 28th, while traveling North with our RV. Bad timing since you will be in Mt Dora, but we will take a day trip up to Reedville anyway to tour the famous Woody Headquarters and the town of Reedville. That way I will have some knowledge of the area when you post stories.
    As a past Marina owner who also took pride in making small and large improvements over a 10 year period, I am reliving those days thru your hard work and achievements. Job well done…
