Down to Four Walls

I apologize to my regular readers for not posting lately. Take a look at the photo below:

No, that’s not my prison cell in some forgotten corner of the world. Those are three of the four walls of a bathroom at my shack here in Aruba. With the help of a couple of talented fellows, I hammered off the old tile, removed the fixtures, took things back to the bare bones. Now it’s going to be a rebuilding process. Get the walls plumb and even. Re-install the electrical equipment. Set new pipes, valves, and facilities. Tile everything and paint a few spots, too. Another week or two of tough work lies ahead. That small space cooks in this Caribbean heat.

Ah, but in the end it’ll be worth it. This is the last MAJOR project here. Then there will be more time for reading, writing, and wandering about the island. As always, stay tuned for the after photos.
