Wow, that is a big island, I didn't notice the size of it before, it is looking good.

Cloud cover this evening so didn't get to break out the telescope.

Gulf Island Building.


Included in my list of things to do is to finish up the cedar work that is necessary. To that end I made up a list a few days ago, and today went over to town to see what was available. Rona had by far the best stuff and I picked up 35 boards of 1 x 6 x 8' select. Thankfully they sell to me at the contractor prices.

This isn't all of them...I had some offloaded before I thought about getting a pic. And yes they came in via the canoe once again.

I still need another 30 boards, but ran out of room in the van to carry them.

Is your canoe just a regular canoe? If it is that is amazing, I would have flipped it before getting it loaded.

It's one of those 16' 6" vinyl canoes. Supposed to have a capacity of 810 pounds, or three people.

That is still amazing, the canoes I have had anything to do with is like sitting on a tight rope they are so tippy.

Keith, as far as 'sun' pixs..you win..but not by 'default', I just have not 'learned'..how to..'upload'..I think is the term..so prolly will 'hand deliver'..a "Xmas Card" to you, if you are still there! Had a 'friend' here from "United Arab Emarits",(SIC) and he wants to buy your place..just by your posts..and he has '$lotsa"..but I told him, you are an artist in progress..who wants to see 'his/her' place..completed, so seems he will be 'open', but now, looks towards the Frazer Valley. He was totally impressed, by how you had ..'taken' wood from shore..to build your 'structure'!
Cheers
Syd

Jim, the seats in canoes are very low down, and once you are in place, it should be fine.

Syd: Just sent you a pm about uploading a pic. Good luck!

I hope it's the same for a PC as it is for a Mac.

Nothing very exciting going on here. Got the steps down to the bay cleaned and stained yesterday.

There is a pretty big pile of wood to clear up down by the mill...it's 57 feet long and about 10 feet wide in the middle. Hopefully I can get it all cut up for firewood before the rains hit.

Tonight's sunset. And as the sun was going down the wind started coming up. Looks like it might be the first big wind of the season.

Better watch out for Mr no shoulders, you know them copper headed rattle moccasins. There is bound to be at least a bad spider in there.

Beautiful sunset buddy, we appreciate the pictures.

I wish you had a wide angle lens and could get a picture of your whole house and grounds, I know it is some kinda beautiful.

Spiders we have here by the thousands along with the grass snakes. But that's about it. Once in awhile the occasional salamander when it is wet.

Ahah! I spy big letters on Mr. Jim's handle! Congratulations!

Does this mean I have to behave myself all the time now?
