After showers and breakfast Ken headed outside. The plan was for him to bar b que some chicken legs and thighs for him, breast for me. He wanted potato salad to go with it, so I made it up this morning. You never know what'll happen later in the day 😄
He got started on the stem walls and mixing concrete. Good thing we bought that cement mixer years back. Sure makes mixing and pouring the concrete much better for him. He had 20 sacks to get mixed up and into the stem walls. That kept him busy for hours!

I got out and mixed the stain for the bunkhouse. We thought we were buying closer to the color it was originally, but this is a redder tint. We both like it a lot, but now that means the whole bunkhouse has to be painted. Oh well, it'll all be better protected.
I got started on the front porch area, as that really needed it and it was out of the wind, which now had really picked up. Probably 25 mph steady with wind gusts! I didn't get as much done as I wanted because of the wind. I didn't want to paint the floor of the porch as it would have ended up sticky with sand. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day early on anyway!

|I love the deeper color! Hopefully the porch floor tomorrow..|
|See the difference in color on the post?|
About 1400 I put 2 Corona Light beers in the freezer and a little later we sat on the front porch of the house and enjoyed them! Then we came inside for a snack of cheese and crackers and celery as we skipped lunch because we were working.

|Almost made it all the way Can't wait for the rock.|
Cleaned up our stuff and now we're inside. No barbecue tonight, just too windy. Hot dogs and hot links for Ken and I'll probably have a turkey burger. Maybe tomorrow night.
Ken should be able to get some rock in place tomorrow. He's a few bags short on concrete but we'll get that later.
Happy Hour! Have a good evening!
