Dock Out and Exterior Trim
We were in Argentina and Chile for a bit shooting cities, fashion, mountains, glaciers, penguins and puma cubs looking for momma (who snuck up behind us). So, a bit behind on posts.
Our lakes freeze during winter. And then the ice sheet moves around a little bit. And in spring the ice can move around a lot as it breaks up. Docks and the posts that hold them don’t stand a chance against the moving ice so our docks and boat lifts have to be removed every fall and reinstalled every spring.
Miller Mobile Marine are doing our dock and our neighbors Jim and Kathy’s at the same time. Below he’s using his barge to move one of our neighbors lifts over a bit so that there’s room for ours (above).
Putting Jim and Kathy’s lift up on their beach. You can see that everyone else already has their docks out. We’re a bit late doing it on 30 Oct.
All stored for winter.
Chris and Dan have been busy with exterior trim details.

Chris is a true Minnesotan. It’s 24°f and he’s still able to do extremely accurate cuts. I was one layer (and a few brain cells) short the day I shot this and was getting uncomfortably cold. It’s really not a good idea to not dress properly during winter.
Our lake has begun to get a thin bit of ice covering it by the first week in Nov. We can’t walk on it yet but I did see some ducks walking across it.
The concrete folks placed blankets on the floor of the sauna and then propped this bit of foam against the door in hopes of keeping the ground warm enough to be able to pour concrete. They’ll also need to pour concrete between the sauna and the door on the left so I was surprised they’d not layed blankets down there.
