It's kind of fuzzy, but traffic was such that we didn't have long for me to take it, and I thought it was too good to throw away.

The men have the wainscoting up in the dining hall, and it is so beautiful. They’ll put three coats of varnish on it, all low luster. And then they’re going to build benches to put in it, and eventually, tables. It’s fun to look at the boards on the wall, and see the different patterns in the wood (most of it is pine, but some is spruce) and know that they came right of the camp property. Jess (lake camp director) said he has people asking if he will come clear the logs off their property, and he can have that for lumber. It’s certainly different being in a place that has more lumber than they can use at this time!

This afternoon the men ran some logs through the saw mill, and then tomorrow they’ll cut and plane them for the benches. I tell you, Bob is like a little kid, he’s so excited about doing all this! They used one log to make a long square column for someone. I took some more pictures of the dining hall, but they don’t look much different than the ones you saw last week, so I’m going to include scenic

These rotten poles are in the water and around the water. I think they're so interesting.

Vicki, as requested, I am letting others know that these "poles" are called "pilings," and they would have at one time held up a pier or dock which would indicate that they are or were in a tidal zone or that the water is down.

I told Carrell I had heard this term used, but wasn't sure what was being referred to. We've been told they are where things were built, but that's so hard to believe when you see how far out into the water they are, and that there are soooo many of them. Of course there are scads more during low tide, but even when the tide is high I wonder what in the world was built clear out there! Or what was built in that little spot of water standing all by itself! Thanks for the information. Vicki
