The outfall saga, mission accomplished.

This is what we were looking at in January.

Day 2 as low tide approaches, the crew tackles the remaining pipe and bracket, weighing probably 200 lbs. at least.

As long as nothing goes wrong, this is going great!

From across the cove. Note the stairway emerging from behing the rock at upper left. The big tree at upper right is like a great battle-scarred ent guarding the coast from invading waves.

Grinding the four 1&1/4" stainless steel studs holding the 1" steel plate, holding the two 4"x1/2" u-brackets, holding the 3/8" wall 4" steel pipe

"Haul up the grinder"

It's loose!

"Crank on the come-along!"

Foreman and safety overseer.

Final details. See the pipe laying on rocks at left. Is it my imagination or is the climber sporting a halo?

Yeah something's definitely glowing.

Remnants not likely to be noticed from your house. Could come in handy, tho', in some unlikely scenario.

That's much nicer, thank you!

It feels good, and as a bonus, right, to remove an eyesore that serves
no purpose.
Our thanks to Skip, Terry, the Highlands, Dan, DMC Construction, Derek,
Joe, Bill, Pedro, Victor, Angel, and Gideon.
Good job, there's nothing to show for your work!
