More Backyard pics

I'm putting up a few more pics at the request of Shyue Chou. Tomorrow I'm flying down to Nashville. Next week, It's back to Myrtle Beach, and Lumberton, NC. The following week I'm off to Minneapolis and St. Cloud, MN. Monday I flew into and out of Chicago in the same day. I'm really at it lately! Look for some pics from there, too!
This is the little pontoon boat ! It's 17ft long and has a 14 x 8 foot deck. It's like taking your patio out into the middle of the lake. A great fishing, cigar smoking platform. I'm toying with the idea of getting a Bar-B-Q for it.
This shot is looking across the river at the houses on the other side. That ol' beat up rowboat is fun to take up river northward where the pontoon can't go because you have to go under the bridge of a road. Those cat-tails broke free and I'll get them out of there before they take root.
View looking up from the dock. I made that walkway out of broken concrete that I got for free from somebody who was replacing thier driveway. See! I recycle!
That's my "Thinking rock"...

I think that picnic table is going into the bonfire this year...

Beautiful place you have, Tim!

Yes, very sweet. I miss the midwest. Be careful going under that bridge. You never know what you'll find in there.

Hooray for recycled concrete! We have utilized that stuff aplenty on our mountain bike trails. It makes great armoring for creek crossings and muddy areas, and you can stack it up and mortar it together for some cool technical features.

I remember our house in Jersey with a big backyard complete with weeping willow, picnic table, and a creek. Those were the days!

Tim, it's simply beautiful. Words fail me.

What about photos of Nashville if you have the time?
