36. The park's new sun deck is joined to existing decksWith the main portion of Naturist Legacy Park's new sun deck now complete, the next step was to join it to the neighbouring decks. I built a bridge between the sun deck and the washroom/shower deck. I removed a section of railing on that deck for access. A fellow director helped me erect small sections of chain link fencing on either side of the bridge in order to maintain the minimum six-foot high pool enclosure fencing requirement of Manitoba Health. An approximate six inch gap existed between the sun deck and the pool's splash deck. I removed the deck boards on three splash deck segments and replaced them with longer boards that fanned out to reach the edge of the sun deck. I added additional framing as necessary. My last task was to add steps to the ground on either side of the new bridge. If you look carefully, you can see a thin skim of ice on top of the blue pool cover in the last photographs! It had taken us until early November to finish this project (partly due to the project's large size, and partly due to other demands upon my time). Cold weather had by now returned and it was finally time to lay down my tools for another season.
