Where To?

We had been discussing a little project over the last several months that SU wanted to build.  He wanted to place his new project in the back yard.  I pointed out that he was accumulating a few “little projects” in the back yard and we only had a finite amount of space left.  Once the coconut palm was removed out front, I pointed out that it would be the perfect place for his new project.

He was given a beautiful post that just needed the bark removed.  A friend gave him a tip to use the power washer and it was cleaned and set in the ground in no time…

Once the post was set he created a raised base in the shape of a compass…

And then he began adding signs…

And more signs…

The other day SU showed me that he still had wood left so I think there’s going to be a few more signs added.

The post has become an attraction and we’ve had a few people stop and take pictures…in the campo.

    OK, I officially love this. Much more interesting than the palm tree. Kudos to SU. And by the way, your garden looks lush and lovely — lots of work over the years you’ve lived there. Quite the perfect home in da Campo!

      Eric has had a lot of fun building this. He’s a map and compass guy from way back. The distances on the signs don’t come out great in the pictures but they are there courtesy of the chief researcher in the household. 🙂

      The garden has gone through a few iterations since we started it. Eric has really taken the task in hand and learned a lot about plants.

    The song “Do you know the way to San Jose” comes to mind now.

    I love it. Really nice

  4. That’s great!
    He should make a sign pointing in both directions to the exact spot that is opposite of your location on the other side of the planet!
    Hopefully it’s not in the middle of an ocean!

      Thanks for that one…I’m sure once I give him the suggestion the ‘research’ department will have it added to her list…LOL!

I'd love to hear from you!
