Docks are in!
The docks are in and ready for your arrival. The water is the deepest it’s been since John and I started managing the resort in 2006. Dock day always manages to be damp, cool and gloomy. One of these years they will hopefully have a beautiful sunny and warm day to put the docks in. They managed to get the log out from under the bridge, it took all of them to move it. Two other logs washed up on shore yesterday, the ice must have been thick this year to move such large logs.We are very fortunate to have a great group of guys help us put our docks in each year.
John giving orders.
Section of dock works great as a ramp.
Randy keeps track of the numbered posts….all 225 of them.
They sure stirred up the creek while getting the log out from under the bridge.
Discussing what to do next.
I missed it, right before I took this picture poor Aaron was knocked over and went completely under water. It filled up his waders with water and they still had 3 hours worth of work in the water.
Tackling the stack of pier sections at the beach. there are a total of 84 sections in all.
It’s a good thing they float.
As you can see the water is deep this year. The deepest section is putting in the dock where we keep our pontoon boat. Normally the chest high waders are enough to keep you dry.
Not sure what Aaron is doing here. Maybe he wants to go for another swim.
I think John A. is getting the better part of the deal. Thanks John O. for braving the cold water to help us put our docks in.
More team work.
