The Stick (Fall 2021)

Sunset and Moonshine (by Romey)

Who knew that installing a new washer/dryer combo thing could be so fun?  That’s the nature of the Stick, I suppose.  Now that I properly own it again, the time has come to spruce it up (a constant battle in the elements provided by the nearby Atlantic).  We also fixed the ridiculously installed electricity, added some lights in the kitchen and over the bar, and installed a beautiful shelf in the bathroom.

Special thanks to Mr Skaggs for the help, as always above and beyond the call of duty.  Anyway, here’s how all that unfolded over two visits

Moonshine and Rosie demonstrate how it feels to arrive at the Stick.

 

Mike learned about pickapeppa on cream cheese.  A serious YUM.

 

The ocean is great when you are under one

 

Look at that professional grade piping!

Kitchen lighting. Now there is no excuse for not properly cleaning the kitchen.

 

The bar lights

 

Claudio and his family are going to do some major work next year. But first they need to see what they are getting into.

A second trip down with the Shepardsons and Romey was required to install the W/D (on order for several weeks).

 

Installing this thing required taking the entire closet apart, cleaning out 25 year worth of dryer lint, and putting it all back together (without improving the design one tad…LOL).  Gotta say that drying sheets and towels is a thing.
