Anniversary Gazebo.  So we envisioned a trail with a small gazebo in which we could peaceably watch nature and divine wisdom.  

Trail leading to gazebo

We designated our anniversary as the day we would get the gazebo started (34 years of marriage.)  We started out by putting a post in the middle with a 7 foot string and clearing a 14 ft. diameter opening in the woods as we needed space for the gazebo and a trail around it.  We placed it so we could minimize cutting of natural growth.

We then used a post hole digger to dig the six holes for the cedar poles.  We tried to get the feed bin roof on ourselves, but ended up having to call in reinforcements.  We have such wonderful neighbors.
