Our Last Beautiful Day In Fort Worth

We are going to caulk the edges so we put new tape down to get an even line.

Even though it looks uncomfortable, Mike still manages to take a nap.

It's our last day in Fort Worth and it's been amazing!  Julie and the people of Fort Worth, on the work site and off, have made this a wonderful experience.

Walleye Vision

We are almost finished grouting!

Once we've finished grouting, we can take off the tape.

End of day ten!

That evening we got a tour of Julie's studio.  The Painting in the photo is going in the lobby of the water plant.

Last Piece of the Puzzel

The last panel.

There were 31 panels in this mosaic and #16 happens to be the last one to install.

Time to grout.

The water filtration area. They call them pools although despite the heat, it's not tempting to jump in.

Grouting can still be fun even when it is 88 degrees.

End of day nine!

Infinite Days of Work

Mike trowling over the perfect day eight.

Replacing small pieces, one by one...

End of day eight! It`s been sunny and hot everyday but it`s also been ridiculously windy!

Mixing it Up

Mike at his mixing station.

While installing, mike uses tape so the piece doesn't sag or move while it's where we want it to stay.

Cleaning out the mortar that has come through our newly installed pieces.

The crate has functioned as a "back buttering" table, a lunch table and a work space for cutting the top line.

End of day seven!

The Lone Star

Even the back of the piece looks good.

It looked like it was going to rain but we've been very lucky avoiding it.

End of day six!

Days in the Country

Our neighbors at the work site

Today we are continuing with the fixes...

Since we`ve reached the stairs, we have to cut the panel to fit.

End of day five!
