Inside outside

GazeboI bought a gazebo (marquee) to go on the main deck.

To give you an idea of the size, it's 6 metres by 3 metres (18ft * 9ft).

While I'm a little disappointed that it's not as weatherproof as I was expecting, it seems to do the business.

I was expecting to feel sheltered when inside the gazebo, but was unprepared for just how much the simple addition of a gazebo contributed to the 'inside' space on board, even though it's outside.

I found myself sitting there thinking 'this bit of the deck needs sweeping', something I'd not really considered before, as the deck has simply needed hosing down, or cleaning, once in a while.

Now I should be able to work on deck even when it's wet and miserable.
