Beach rocks

I quit early today after digging a foundation (only three bricks high) for the new 'sidewalk' (banqueta) that will surround the house. Have to aim the water away from the house and also just cover some of the dirt that I have lived with for the last three years. Cement, grass and garden will be much nicer than what I have. Placing rocks in the sidewalk somehow is the idea but we don't have a firm plan.

So I've been collecting rocks from all the digging we've been doing and have quite a pile but they aren't that pretty. My workers suggested going to the beach for rocks with lots to choose from ... and there are lots.

I sat there with my bucket and just enjoyed the afternoon, the ocean and the breeze


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
