Turning 50

November 16th, 2015

Well, along with moving from Dubai and completing my PhD, I also turned fifty this year. Annette planned an amazing surprise party for me and managed to keep me completely in the dark. See: http://gallery.lesduke.com/index.php?/category/267.

We started by jumping on a lobster boat for a 3 hour cruise around Port Mouton Bay.


We had a great time and managed to get lots of great photos.


We then returned to the cottage for a barbeque ...


... and more surprises.




Building the storage shed

With our recent move from Dubai, we now have a lot of new stuff at the cottage. While we are finding places to store or integrate this furniture into our space, we also needed to have a laundry room that actually had laundry facilities.  

The answer? The shed.

Have a look at some of the construction photos:  http://gallery.lesduke.com/index.php?/category/271

The shed started out like this...


and ended up like this

Building the storage shed

The shed is very solid. It sits on 11 of these posts sunk 4 feet into the ground.
