Today Diana and I travelled to the Midlands to meet with various family members. It was while at the pub where we ate together that we saw a structure in its Beer Garden that we felt was perfect inspiration for the "viewing platform" we had been talking about having built on the main island.
It's all beginning to turn into part of our wedding plans. The work to repair the decking around the lawn beside the house is booked and an extension of that job will be the building of a platform on which some kind of gazebo will stand.
The plan is to have it built on the highest part of the island overlooking the area we call "The Pool". We fantasise about idyllic summer barbecues and picnics beside the water — all in our own back garden!
