Tree off the back porch looks good at night...in daytime it appears to have gotten a bit scraggly.
Might work in a Harry Potter scene?
Oops...just noticed that I ran the same pic yesterday.
Photo was so out-of-focus that it was sort of...cool...well...at least...colorful.
First, had to remove the sticky tape residue from the duct tape I used to hold things in place on the boat during the truck-ride down: Wire for the radio microphone, wire for the antenna, and the wire for the gps unit would flail themselves to death if not restrained by tape.
Next, a general mop-down of the decks using an environmentally approved soap that actually works pretty well...if you lean on the mop a bit.
Then, attack the mildew in the hatches, especially in the hatch run-off drains.
Finally, scrub the stubborn spots with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser [the cheapo ones from Winn-Dixie seem to work just as well], and a final rinse.
We're blessed with another beautiful day, so the hatches can stay open for a few hours to dry and wipe out the rest of the mildew [can just hear the little mildew spores crying out "Here comes the sun...run for it fellas!."
This shot shows the boat sitting in the basin which is shaped like a capital G...sort of.
Keeps the boat very safe in storms, but makes getting in and out through that narrow opening a bit tricky...not a one-person job.
ZCM may recall that we saw a school of mullet in there last year.
Wonder if it's the same gang.
