|How cute is this?|
This weekend was my Mom's first at the new cottage, and she approves of it. I like the fact that there is lots of room for her walker (at the old cottage we had to leave it at the back door and use it outside only). It was wonderful having her up; she said it was the best weekend she'd had in a long time.

Construction/destruction continues: Iain removed the old pump platform (left over from the boathouse-cum-machine-shed, now on Dodie's property). It certainly improves the view from the gazebo!
|Iain found about six huge dock spiders every time he removed a board.|
Iain had to take off work on Friday to finish up some electrical stuff and have the building inspector and hydro inspector both in for their approval: and they gave it! Which means we have officially passed all inspections (and the well water tested completely safe, also)! This takes a big burden off, because Iain ended up doing a lot of the electrical work himself, and he was worried that he'd miss something; but all was well.
