Our New Deck Project Has Been Completed

It has been a while since my last blog entry. It is turning Fall-ish around here so I have been doing some Fall cleanup in the gardens, planting a few plants along with dealing with some medical issues. Before you know it another couple of months have passed by.
We just completed getting our new TREX deck installed.  We are so glad to have the old one taken down and removed. We had the deck extended one foot all of the way around, which is about as big as we can get without really encroaching on our backyard space. This new deck is approximately 15' x 23' or approximately 340 square feet.
Here are a few before photos:

Below is after the old deck has been removed

Our new deck has been installed and this project has been completed. It took a total of 3 days from start to finish. Today the final inspection will be completed and then we can put our furniture back on the deck.

Part 1 Of Our Most Recent Adventures - Baltic Cruise with A Couple Of Extra Days In Copenhagen

 A couple of weeks ago we returned from our most recent adventures..a Baltics Cruise on Norwergian Cruise Lines along with a couple of pot-cruise days in Copenhagen. Here are some photos that I took during our adventures:

Here is our 11th deck aft balcony cabin onboard the NCL Getaway. We love the aft of the ship because we can hear the engine sounds really well at night and because of the views that the aft of the ship affords us. 

Our first port was in Warnemunde, Germany. We had been here and all of the ports shown during our first Baltic cruise which was back in 2010. It was nice to visit each port of call again and see what changes had transpired since our last trip.

This was a bakery that we stopped at when we last visited Warnemunde. On the day we were there in 2010 they had an outdoor market going on across the street in the church parking lot. We weren't so lucky this time around.

Our next port of call was in Tallinn, Estonia. Here are some photos from our visit there.
This is the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin in Tallinn.

While walking around, we happened to find this really cool cafe. The way that they had it set up and decorated was really nice and it had a lot of character. The lighting was also fantastic inside.

More outdoor cafes in Tallinn.

Below is the Old Town section of Tallinn which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997:
