Finished!


At long last, the Stairs at the end of Grace Road are finished and today we held a private celebration on the deck of said stairs.  All but one of the volunteers was there.

Kudos go to Carl Noffsinger, Ron Bayette, Corky Anderson, Chris Noffsinger, Mike Jones, Tyler Jones, and last but not least John Keilor who brought along some heavy equipment from Luedtke Engineering.

So, I have pictures, no one wanted to be singled out or pose for me.  “No accolades” we were told.  The newspaper wanted to put out a spread but the men said “no” to that as well.  Quietly, with hors d’oeuvre we celebrated this afternoon.
The sun was out and warm and glowing.   Wow, what amazing weather we’ve been having for the last 8 or so days.  The pictures are not all that great, but good enough to give you an idea of how wonderful this is going to be for everyone who wants to enjoy this glorious beach.

So here now the pictures of the guys and, of course, the finished stairs

Everyone getting ready for the walk down to the beach

There you have it.  Ok, so we are looking forward to beach going season.  Every day of the year is beach going season in my mind.

A word about the future of this blog. 
I promise not to  forget my camera so often and to think about writing about more things
that might interest you who don’t live here.

Mike and I consider ourselves very, very lucky to live right here.  Our 17 th season is coming to an end. We have no availability until Tuesday. Grrrrreat 😉
