   During our short stay on Camano Island, I had a crazy idea of building a BBQ pit. Trina questioned my sanity but decided to trust me. This is a photo tour of what I did. Our neighbor, Jergen had a few bricks and cinder blocks of various sizes and styles. No one knew how I was going to make this look like something... er... well decent. I had lots of ideas but not a lot of experience with concrete or laying bricks, but I dove in head first, the idea was to have it ready for Becky’s birthday, in November.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First there was a bit of cleanup to do, and grass to plant, we were putting in a lawn as well.
