Living in such a tropical climate right on the water creates quite a challenge when your resort is made almost entirely of wood. One of the coolest projects we work on over the Summer and Fall as we prepare for our season is the pressure-washing of the boardwalks and decks. Each morning our devoted volunteers and staff don a pair of headphones, find a favorite playlist on their ipod, and zone-out to the vibrations of the pressure-washer as they make their way through camp. Some prefer to go without the headphones, choosing instead to both feel the vibrations and listen to the loud drone as they meditate and contemplate the meaning of life. One thing for sure? - the job they do is pretty incredible and the results speak for themselves:
