The pressure is on......

8:25 am - Tuesday - September 1st - Coupeville, WA - 54° F, 86% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the northwest.....partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 66°F.  On this day IN 2014 we were visited in South Lake Tahoe by my lifetime friend, Don Neff.......↴


I changed things up Monday deciding to focus my efforts on pressure washing.  I wanted to complete the job I began a few days ago on the parking area in front of the 3 car garage down to the left side of the house in the picture below......↴


....as well as down the walkway to the back patio.......


....the sidewalk which runs along the side of the 3 car garage......


......the deck at the top of the stairs leading to the rear patio......


......and, finally, the rear patio itself.....↴


.....I was finished within 3 hours.  In turn, I moved Bob's 1.5 ton Ford dually, to which the pressure washer trailer is attached,q down the driveway to just below the lower parking area, which will position me to finish the balance of the drive down to Harrington Lagoon.  It shouldn't take me more than 3-4 hours to finish that.  

On the 'painting' front I have about 5-6 hours more of work to put another coat of stain on the front porch deck, and then do all the rest of the staining of the areas I can't reach with a roller using a paint brush.  I should be able to finish everything by Thursday....at least that is my Jello goal.  The weather seems to be cooperating with no forecast of rain in the next 6 days.

So, our sojourn here on the shores of Harrington Lagoon are coming to an end.  We had planned to depart Whidbey Island next Tuesday via the Coupeville/Port Townsend Ferry, but you must have reservations for that ferry, and there were no reservations available before 6 pm Monday through Friday, but I was able to get a reservation Sunday, September 6th, for 10:15 am.  We chose the Tuesday departure date originally to give ourselves a week to travel down to our winter job south of Newport, OR....we'll now have 9 days to make the journey giving us some time to linger a day, or two in some areas of the Olympic Peninsula.
