We are getting closer. After what has seemed like a lifetime of never ending dirt and renovations, in a flurry of activity this week with over 20 people assisting we have the walls and floor have been poured for the pool. 🙂
I had no idea all that building a concrete pool entailed, specially in the ever shifting Caribbean sand. Half way through the week when the re-bar had been laid and most of it tied, the unthinkable happened…, all of a sudden and with no warning the East wall just gave way and started to collapse into the pool.
This crew of 10 had been here until after 8:00 the previous night trying to get the pool ready for the pour today. Unfortunately with the collapse of the wall it was going to be another long day for the crew. The great thing about these guys is, they do everything with a great spirit, they may not always work fast but they work hard and always with a smile and jokes flying around, (granted I don’t have a clue what they are saying but they say it with a smile) They all arrive outside the gate every morning by 6:50 am and are ready to start promptly at 7:00 and leave no earlier than 4:00 pm. Most days these past 2 weeks they have stayed to work late as things needed to get done. Twice they stayed past dark, the day before the pour they stayed until midnight, arriving the next morning at 5:30 am to get ready for the pour and the other 10 workers that would be arriving.
At this rate it looks like we will be able to start accepting guests the beginning of July, make sure to fill out the form on the right to receive updates and be informed about special promotions and events.
