Building Fences

As it turns out, I didn’t get to chop wood 😦  I was reassigned to building fences.

This deck is nice and new ~ but, unfortunately, it comes with a lovely view of the generator.  We need to fix that!  Plus, the new redesign of building the deck atop the old septic tanks eliminated some fences providing a better view towards Peach Point.

Fortunately, I learned a fair bit of carpentry / handy-manning from my Uncle Jerry.  I was able to pass on some of that knowledge to a gentleman about 30yrs my senior and teach him the basics of using a circular saw, adjusting it properly, and making solid and straight cuts.

The fence is really coming along.

Newton ~ The Rock’s organic, all-natural, semi-environmentally friendly Goose control device: canis familiaris is thoroughly unamused by the squirrels running up the trees to evade him.

Perry’s Victory Memorial.  (Not a monument.  Not a lighthouse.)

Interim Director Chris Winslow, Ph.D. ~ about to give us the business on Harmful Algal Blooms and some of the research grant money flowing through.  It’s great to hear how many institutions are all working together towards common goals for the Citizens and state agencies.

Nothing big planned for the morning ~ just the typical brekkers, quick walk around the island for the bird watching thing, then departing back toward home.

As always, it was great to be here and help out ~ but I’m looking forward to heading home and sleeping in my own bed!  Then, in a few months, I’ll be looking forward to coming back in Spring!
