Mariko is a graduate of architecture school in Germany — and lucky for me — my partner in working on this brick path at the B&B. (How fabulous is she — putting together this sketch for the design.)

We got super excited today because we can see the end of the beginning — that is — we’ve extracted almost 90% of the earth that needs to go. We even started on the ‘fun part’ — the design part — which was quite a boost!!

While we still have dirt to remove (on one part of the path) -- we are also beginning to spread granite as the very bottom base layer (at one of the entry points to the path).

To give you an idea of how long this path is -- we counted 30 trips to dump the wheelbarrow that we loaded with excavated dirt. (That was just today. In total there have been about 60 trips.)

This is my 'work on paper' today...I know, compared to Mariko's I clearly add no value lol!!!
