Replacing the Ruined Dock

The dock at the end of my back yard on Valley Lake was a ruin. Too far gone for renovation, replacement was the only option. I wasn’t going to do it this year (see Priorities, Regrets and Successes), but finally I just couldn’t bear looking at it any more and decided to go ahead.

Here’s how it looked before. As you can see, over the winter is got much worse.

No regrets!
