157 - Reconnaissance

Reconnaissance - a preliminary survey to gain information; especially : an exploratory military survey of enemy territory.

This week some very good friends of ours are leaving town to take their son on a college tour up north. While they were gone, we decided to surprise them with a little backyard makeover. Today we snuck over there while they were at lunch after church to get the lay of the land. It is hard to tell by the pictures, but the ground is very uneven, doesn't drain, and every time it rains, the patio floods. They are getting ready to have an empty nest and one of the things they like to do is to sit on the patio, talk and enjoy a glass of wine, so we thought it would be nice to make them a little oasis to enjoy.
