These guys know how to enjoy their ten days at the cottage. Brian and Tom built a dry stone bell tower last week on the concrete pad where the old family flagpole used to be. It's ten feet tall (with the bell) and it's beautifully constructed from weathered stones from their beach.
The four by four post was bolted into the same angle irons that held the flag pole. On top of it a square of plywood was secured and so fixing the top four corners for the string lines to mark ample 'batter' lines for the sturdy bell tower structure to be built to.
I can't think of anything more handsome (or useful) for announcing to fellow cottagers that it's Happy Hour.
