deck work 1st day

wheeeeeeeeeeeeew. Got the walkway deck in today. Warm day [thank the gods for the breeze]. Every piece has to be resized in one way or t' other. This part is going to take some time because of that. Trim, measure, trim, measure, on and on but we will overcome! hehehehe. Only 2 cuts, 3 bruises, and 4 gouges between us. Not a bad day!

New pad

This is moving along nicely but, now the real work begins. New pad is in - posted are 3 views, right, left, and down the middle. We got the trailer pushed in nose first with surprisingly little trouble - thanks to ramps, a piano mover, a truck pusher and a "beefy" 4WD pick up! Now, after this weekend we need for relaxation, we rebuild an all new decking cuz everything has to be shorter and smaller to fit now! More pictures later!

6.28.08 The last day. The North Sea Coast of Denmark
Sorry, a bit late here.
Almost the entire north west coast of Danmark is these
rolling hills. People build their houses in the valleys between them.
There's a lot of WWII stuff in this area. The 2 bunkers were
built by the Germans during the occupation. The U-20 U-Boat
was the one that sank the Lusitania in 1915, bringing the US
into WW1. Then the anchor museum has some OLD anchors
from ships that sank in the area going back to 1832. Well, its
been fun, but It's home after this.
The North Sea. Sunny day, chilly wind!

Herning, Denmark, 6.25.08 8:45 pm local time

Yesterday and today visited a museum, castle,
a weird piece of art called Elia by Cronhammar,
and a beautiful church/cemetary. Also saw Lene's
place at Limfjorden [my friend and hostess/guide].
The 'art' piece was sposed to bellow smoke and fire
at certain times but, so far, has done nothing but
sit there. The cemetary is unique. Each 'plot' has
it's own mini garden. Rather beautiful. I am afraid my
brain quit here as I didn't take a picture of lene's lake
cabin on the Fjord called Limfjorden. More tomorrow.
