Power washing... lighthouses... and buoys

Tim and Tom are busy with pressure washing over 100 picnic tables... Today they start to spray paint them. What a job!!!
On Saturday we took Tom and his lady friend Carole to Havre de Grace with us to tour the Crown Point Light House... We walked 3/4 mile on a promenade that followed the waters where the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay meet. We saw a lot of big sail boats... You could even take a FREE ride on one if you waited long enough.This town was established in 1785....
The Crown Point Light House is much smaller than the Turkey Point Lighthouse we toured last week-end. This lighthouse was built in 1827 and is the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in Maryland.
While we were walking around, they were having a big dedication for a " smart signal " buoy.. There are only 2 like it in operation now. I'm not sure what all it is suppose to do but a man told us how great it will be and how very expensive it is!!! There were a lot of people there to see the dedication but it sounded like BORING speeches to us... Guess you have to live here...

I love pressure washing. You can really see results.

I want to get Yale's pressure washer and do my driveway and sidewalks again. I think it has been 18 months now.

See you in 9 days.
