Back on island time

When I left Skallywag Park ten days ago things were beginning to ramp up quickly. It was like many projects of this type. Progress seems slow as all of the infrastructure, underground conduits, drainage footings and retaining walls are built. When the work progresses beyond this stage it seems like things are progressing much faster. The reality is that the progress is visually faster for the work you see is going vertical. and the steps they are taking are the final ones, built overtop of the starting work. When I left the site ten days ago they were just finishing the pour of the bumper boat pool. Other areas of the park were quickly shaping up as well. Where we formerly walked in mud there is now largely concrete in many areas.

This evening I arrived back on the island to oversee the work being done in the adventure golf area. We placed many of the features last visit and since then I'm told the crews have done much of the shaping of the ground in these areas. It is our hope that in the next few days the crews will begin the pouring of the greens at last.  I'll be laying out these areas and overseeing many more finishing steps around the park. Stay tuned for some exciting pictures over the next few days...
