Our wonderful, talented builder/engineer friend Dave (I know he reads this so I have to keep him buttered up so he will return soon ) drove in Saturday morning in time for breakfast and then spent the rest of the day getting things underway.
He brought with him a special level thingee with which to make the job not only easier but straight and true.
Anson and Glen zoomed out in the dinghy to set a net and then went back out later to pull it in.
They got a few fish to add to dinner.
Anson was doing stock work most of the day so whenever I looked out the window it was a hive of activity in the yards, shed and at the beach.
They worked until quite late.
Dinner was around 8pm.
Dave was the first guest to stay in Anson’s ex room!
The tide was very, very high today.
I told Tim at lunch time about the huge earthquake in Peru and the tsunami warnings that were being broadcast.
So that explains why the tide is higher than normal for a full moon.
No tsunami here as such but tide surge which is apparently sposed to keep happening over the next few days.
Dave had to head back home after a quick lunch.
Thanks for all your help Dave.
Appreciate it, and your smiling countenance
(just thought I would throw in that new word that the kids discoverd today!!)
When they were manoeuvring the 8m long pile cap Nathan went down and gave them a hand.
They will have 10 x 8m caps to attach at the large end of the wharf.
Quite a major as they are so heavy and unwieldy.
