I'm not sure exactly what is being done, but our road is getting torn up. Well, not technically "torn up" because the workmen have cut huge circles out of the black top, so there is reason to what looks like a mess!

It reminded me of my honeymoon. Kevin and I stayed in a cottage near the ocean (someone in my church let us use it rent-free!). We woke up the first morning to "beep-beep-beep"--the sound, we thought, of the garbage truck. However, after hearing this beeping sound for quite a while, we went and looked out the front window. It wasn't a garbage truck! It was a work crew tearing out the road!

We could have gotten out with our car, I'm sure, but it would have been quite a hassle. Instead, we chose to walk down to the beach. From there we walked into the town, and did some window shopping and got lunch. We had a nice day together.

The next morning, we were getting ready to leave, and they hit a water main. That was pretty funny, especially since the water was spurting across the street, and not into our yard. The work crew made it possible for us to get out with our car. In our honeymoon scrapbook, I have two pictures of this torn up road, and the water spurting all over the place.

Isn't it funny how things like this can turn into good memories? Kevin and I still laugh and talk about it today!
