Deck is Done


This week’s project has been The Deck. Monday morning we cleared it of all furniture, rugs, and potted plants then cleaned it with chlorine bleach and deck cleaner. Tuesday we let it dry. Tuesday evening we started staining it. All told it took four days, two quarts of cleaner, one gallon of bleach, two and a half gallons of stain, one and a half gallons of clear coat, a roller with a long handle, a brush, two dedicated workers who slept well each night and are ready to do it again. Thank heavens for four sunny days. Now it can rain on Friday if it wants. But the deck is beautiful again and happily anticipating hosting it’s annual event the end of this month.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
