A New Deck
With a tiny cabin build almost 100 years ago, there's always something that needs to be repaired. Especially since it sits empty much of the year. Interestingly, it's often the things that were built much more recently that break down.
Two years ago it was the deck that over looks the river. Certainly an integral part of the cabin experience! The most relaxing thing on earth is to sit on the deck, watch the river go by, and smell the wonderful northern air.
Well, the timbers in the old deck had finally rotted to the point where it was unsafe. So 2009 was the year of the New Deck. It took a good bit of money and quite a lot of our vacation time, but the builders were very pleased with themselves once it was done. And now in 2011, it's such a treat to sit back there with your book, knitting, or to eat a meal.
