New path & steps.

On Saturday work started making the new steps to the shore beyond the Lighthouse store.
Dave had done some initial work excavating the sand and stone to a firm foundation.

Tom, Mick, Joan & Dave did a great job making shuttering and a big job, mixing a vast amount of concrete to fill the foundations














How many Fergies does it take to make a step ??
