    Our light houses were refurbished and the south pier deck was rebuilt. Catwalk is being rebuilt as we speak and will be installed next spring, completing the project. Our harbor entrance is starting to look spiffy again.

    Did you take a walk out on it yet? It's worth a gander even for the lifetime residents among us. That concrete is immaculate. I took the fam for a trip down the pier a couple weeks back. They did a fantastic job with the deck work. They also minimized the previously perilous height difference between the upper and lower sections.

    I was surprised they didn't do any repair/concrete work to the very end near the big light house. I wonder if that will be looked at in future years...?

    Nope. Haven't been out there yet. The quality of the deck does look good from a boat. Was an interesting project to watch. Always wondered how they got concrete poured that far out into the water.

    Yes. Heavily weather dependent operation. But if you have the right tools, anything is possible. Imagine doing this a hundred years ago.

    Was in GH a few weeks ago - they did a nice job (my wife's family lives there) - can't wait to see the catwalk up again!

    Call me Mr. Oblivious. LOL. I brought the new boat out of there Aug 10 and was so new boat absorbed I didn't even notice.

    Hey Mr. Oblivious,
    You will have to take that new boat of your back up here for another look next summer but this time make sure you look me up. We are at North Shore Marina.

    I was at North Shore in early August to look at the 3870 that just sold. That is a nice marina! We do hope to get up there next summer. I will look you up. You should also visit New Buffalo next year and look us up.
