I wasn't sure if I could get the last part built or not. The weather was good, the dirt was dry enough and the lake was still low enough, so we tackled it this week. (Thanksgiving week, 2006)

The lake goes around behind the trees you see behind the house, and goes way past the right side of the picture.
