Every Monday, I kind of make a list of things to do this week. And then
Jan asked me if I wanted to help build a deck with him and his
employee, Rachel. Of course!
The deck will be 14' X 38'. This is where it is going to be located.
Meanwhile, Michele checks out the geese with the babies on the front
We are hard at work. This is Rachel's first deck.
This deck is my third one. Rachel is paying attention and learning fast.
After being a woodworker all day, I turn into a plumber just before
supper. I am flushing the freshwater system on the MH. As for the pink
stuff on the ground, it is safe for the environment.
Benoit sent us the photo of him and a friend doing some geocaching in
I will continue to work on the deck tomorrow.
I almost forgot Jeremy and Kristin skyped with us after supper. Jeremy
has popped the big question to Kristin. She said yes...
No date for the wedding yet. We are very happy for both.

Michele continues with her crochet. She is now making table cloths.
We finished the deck just before lunch. We are pretty happy with our

Today, I continue flushing our freshwater system. I used the
pink stuff for winterizing. It leaves an after taste once
removed. To fix that, I add a little bleach in the freshwater
tank and run water in all the lines. It sanitizes. Let it sit for many
hours. Then flush again with just fresh water. Then flush again
baking soda in the water to remove any after taste. I am all done. The
water tastes good now. We also moved some more stuff to the MH.

We made a few more trips with boxes between the house and the MH.
I found those emergency flashing lights on Amazon.ca and bought them.
They have 9 different ways to flash and a flashlight on all of them.
They are visible from far away. They are going in the trunk of the car.

We have a busy day today.
We are putting all the docks in the water.
This is the equipment we will be using.
In a regular year, the seasonal campers are here to help with the job,
not this year due to COVID.
The crew consists of people in the same bubble. This will be a reduced
This is part of the crew.
The tractor drops the docks in the water. The excavator is used to move
the gangway in place and we install the pins holding it to the base and
Even with a smaller crew, things move along pretty good.
The geese do not like us very much. We are disturbing them.
Andrew took out an old tarp from the water and found a few fish in it,
like this monster.
We continue with the docks on the pier.
We also disturbed a turtle.
The gangway and the docks are all in the water, ready for the
watercraft. We did not put the end platform in the water because the
wind was blowing hard and making it difficult to control.
We are happy with the work done today. Jan, Jannie and Patricia very
happy that all the docks are in the water. They appreciate the help.
We are having Jannie and Jan over for supper tonight. We will be having
a Raclette. I forgot to take some photos.

Jeremy sent us a photo of Natasha. She did not want to smile... They
wish a Happy Mother's Day to Michele.
Benoit also sent a message to Michele for Mother's Day.
We slowly continued our move to the MH. We move stuff slowly because we
will not be moving out until Wednesday.
