another post

Good morning.
It's been another busy week in the Salon.
I did manage to mow the yard after work Friday, and blow all the debris off the driveway and deck. Tuesday was extremely windy, and we have 2 old Chinese Elms that are very twiggy. We also have a Sycamore that's been dropping leaves for a month now due to the drought. So the driveway and deck were a mess. But they look good now.
The gardens look nasty. I'll try to remember to get some pics this weekend and show you. Between the heat and drought, most everything looks worn and ragged. I'm not ready to start cutting everything back yet, so it's good we still have a few more trips to concentrate on.
And to finish this post, some more pics from Indiana Dunes State Park.
These are mostly for Tom and Dean who were there with us in July.
This is a pic of the new viaduct that they were working on and was to be completed by July. Well, it wasn't and still isn't.
This is the other end by the beach trail from the campground and marsh. It appears they've torn out most of what they did and are redoing it. Must have discovered something they didn't plan on and had to redo it.

Here's the nice new fancy metal fencing that runs along it. No wood here except the top rail. This will last decades thanks to the stimulus money.
This is where the bridge for the beach trail will someday go. I'll report back about it's progress when we go back in October.
Now it's time to get ready for my last day at the Salon this week.
