Pour your own - June 30, 2010
No concrete available this week to pour our columns so our new Carpentry Contractor John Fitzgerald (Fitz) brought over his mixer, sand, gravel, sand and cement and the guys batched it themselves. Thanks to our regular crew, Fitz's crew, four wonderful young guys from our Maho Bay 4hr worker program and lots of buckets the columns are poured on building 1 and we're still ahead of schedule.
Had a bit of a scare when we discovered over 2 dozen eggs in the sand. Fearing they were turtle eggs, we collected them carefully and buried them on a nearby beach. We checked with the head of natural resources for the VINP and he confirmed they were iguana eggs, very likely laid after the sand arrived on island. With luck, these baby iguanas will start life on the beach.
