I guess you could say that we were so tired of working on the deck that we kind of considered it complete at this stage even though it is not done. It is also the rainy season now on island and with it raining almost every day, we wouldn't really be able to paint if we wanted to. So, we are waiting and of course are happy for the break.
The steps left to compete the deck are to apply another coat of paint, add caps to the posts, add lanterns and/or solar lights to the deck for lighting, and throw a party. This should hopefully only take us about 3-4 days once we get started on it. For now though, the deck looks beautiful and we are finally able to sit and enjoy it.
