The plan was to make them paint the desalinisaton house but there was too much moisture and we have to let it dry before any painting job . So they helped us with the wood : stalking and splitting and cleaning around the jetty. Guy explained them all the systems involved on Race Rocks( electricity stockage,desalinisation…) and I did the census 2 times in 2 groups. We can tell that during their stay we didn’t use so much water Thanks to them ;they really understood the challenge of the place! One of them had a look at our emergency supply.
End of the month reports. Jetty cleaning with the high pressure washer
