    IMG_1798.JPG One of my aunts sent me this picture of the family building the dock 29 years ago, thought it was pretty neat

    Looks really good! Very cool to see the pics of when it was originally getting built. Great job and hope you make a lot more memories there, that is what your papa would want and I'm sure he's proud of the job you've done!
