The Smell of Kelp

Wow, it has been a busy month for me at least. We're done with the major project at work that we started in March. There is one more big project for work, that I have no real responsibilities on, then cruise control until the new year.

Last time we were down here we could smell the ocean in the car heading down the boulevard on our way into town. Kristi and I spent the evening on the porch just listening to the surf and smelling the air. The next day at the beach we found out why there was such a pungency to the ocean air in the form of tons of fresh kelp washed up on the beach.

This time we came into town in the midst of a torrential rain. Guess what that caused? Yep the roof in the guest bath is leaking bad. Time to call the idiots from Skyline again. How hard is it to fix a roof that you installed?

Next weekend we are doing a three day weekend and, unless the weather is horrendous, we are going to build the shed.
