Crow's nest

Somewhere up there is the crow's nest. The boards on top of the big beams are temporary and are functioning as scaffolding. You can see where I started to scrub this particularly dirty beam.

Crow's nest

Realizing one's dreams can sometimes be a little troubling. In the past two days, the windows on the prow of the Swamp Castle were installed and the floor of the crow's nest was built. For the first time, I climbed up into the crow's nest and looked at the view.

Well, I had built the thing so high that when you stand up, your head is above the window and you see nothing. I had sort of imagined surveying my domain with my guests, one hand on the railing, the other pointing off into the distance describing future projects.
