Long day.

Beach area is finished and I started on the flagstone path. Also the area for the fire-pit was chosen.

Lighting converter and photocell installed. Voltage reads right at 10 at my furthest point.

I can now put beach grooming on my resume.

It's going good.

I still don't know what you mean Stillwater. I hate cutting curves in my stonework and trying to get my joints correct, if that's what you mean.

If you mean that I didn't exact joints in this project is that the stone is natural and irregular, so there was no way to be precise.

Edit....

I just realized what you were talking about. I've actually made over 150 cuts so far with this project. This isn't brick edging.

Here is a pic of some of the cuts. The notch in the block was for my conduit to pass the lighting wires through the wall.

No method on the walk. Just as is, in the sod. I wanted to push them a little closer to each other but I don't think I have enough flagstone to go any tighter. When I'm done I'll throw some sod I striped up for the path around the flagstone along with some dirt and grass seed.

The flagstone is an Arizona sandstone and it's a special order type deal, so the HO is happy with the amount that has been purchased. What is there now is what the local supplier had left in stock and doesn't plan on stocking it anymore.
