After the Storm

The clean up after the storm took several weeks.  We thought everyone would enjoy seeing a few photos after the big storm.

Repairs to this slide in front of the pool area will wait until the dry season.  Rusty is making sure everything is secure!

Cleaning up the dry muddy film from the tile was very time consuming.  It all had to be scrubbed by hand. Eddie worked on the carport and front entrance and I worked on the tile floor inside the house.  Rusty was always close by either trying to help or supervising!

Just when I thought everything was good, we discovered mold in the bathroom and kitchen cabinets.  It took several days to clean the cabinets with a special solution.  All the dishes had to be washed, too.  Who knew that living in “paradise” would be so much work?  Go figure!

Meanwhile in between all the cleaning up, Eddie worked on several projects.  He managed to find time to make the tile framed mirrors in both the guest and master bathrooms.  They turned out beautifully!   Also, he worked on the coffee table.  It will be a while before it’s finished.

Look closely at the yellow palm fruit and you’ll see a pizote (inset photo) eating them.

Give me a smooch, baby!
