Lakefront property...again

Sometimes as often as once a month, the ocean has an extremely high tide, and water gets trapped in front of our house. The high tides last a couple of days, and then it's back to normal.

We used to have to just grin and bear it, and get wet. Wade thru the lake, but when my mom and aunt visited and THEY had to wade thru the lake...well we needed an alternate route. Mom and aunt didnt mind, they chocked it up to living on the beach in Ecuador, but other visitors may not want to wade thru knee high water to get to my house.

Recently we needed work on our water pump, and decided that if the pump was moved, we could use the little walkway between houses as an alternate route if needed. So, we had Johnny move the pump and hose, and added an outlet for our fishermen friends to use. (all for $50 I might add)

So, now we have an emergency walkway, need a gate build, and maybe a step stool to get over the wall, but we can get to the street without getting wet.

So many things in the works, can't wait to share everything with you. So, stay tuned, the adventure continues!
