The fence not only gave us freedom in the yard, but freedom to explore the two levels of decks. Let the deck games commence!
Since our house sits on the salt marsh, we have two levels of decks: off the top floor (bedrooms) and the main floor (Hu-Dad’s study and the rest of the living space). The ground floor has our yard and the garage area which is also the flood zone space (living on the coast means the house is on pylons). Now that the fence is installed, we can go up and down the steps to our yard or any part of the house.
The humans end their day sitting on the deck as the sun sets. Apparently they find it peaceful to watch the birds in the marsh, though we do our best to create a ruckus on the deck with our wrestling games.
