End of the holiday season
05 January 2016
Cold and windy.
I took advantage of a mid-week morning on the boat to take the tree down. The sandbags held the base in place quite well, despite a few nights with 20kt+ winds. And my live aboard neighbor appreciated the Caribbean feel. I must say, the blue led lights grew on me - I used to think they were hideous on the party boat in my old marina. But in moderation, as a part of a holiday tableau, they were just right.
I'm hoping to use the sand as a base for a brick walkway in the yard...if it hasn't hardened into 60 lb, unusable blocks. I did notice a Quickcrete brand name as I was hauling it to the Jeep.
