Day 5 - Project Walkway

Well Day 5 has not seen too much progress as we are having trouble getting our stones from our local building supplies company.  We are hoping that tomorrow will be more productive.

Day 4 - Project Walkway

Small right wall and flower box completed
View of my two flower boxes (still to be replanted)
Our two "plots" for planting shrubs, hopefully this week
(Paul's to the right (Ninebark shrub) and mine to the left (European Snowball))

Work continues today, but we are waiting for more stone

Father's Day

Although Paul's son and daughter were not here to celebrate Father's Day with him, he did enjoy their telephone calls.  He started his day in his favourite place, our back deck, enjoying the view.


Paul requested his favourite breakfast so I cooked him a veggie and cheese omelette.

In the afternoon we visited with his sister and family and took a drive downshore along the coastal road to Salmon Beach.  Then it was back home for a surf and turf supper.


It was a great Father's Day for a special man.

Manual labour - it's a good thing...NOT
