Paddling my own Canute


King Canute may have believed that he could sit on the water without getting wet but I paddled my own Canute and waited for the low tide before putting on a pair of gumboots to repair the jetty.

The morning was mercifully cool and it's all done now as are the new verandah steps to replace some rotten ones. A lick of the old Mission Brown and it'll look as good as new.

That reduces the number of items on my to-do list to three digits! ☺
