The Pirate has been doing masonry work on his job and I showed him your work. Sorry Frank, but The Pirate said if he comes here to do the same, he will gladly help him. He said you do beautiful work.

Thanks again folks! I spent the entire morning stuccoing the rest of the exposed cement blocks.
Next, I need to place some RR ties in a couple of areas around that retaining wall at the far end of the counter so I can back fill with dirt and plant some privacy screen plants as the bbq area is somewhat visible from the street.

Looks beautiful, roadfix! Your railroad ties for a privacy screen plant area sounds great, too. Following your progress.

The RR ties were used to erect retaining walls where we had to make level ground on our hillside back yard. The BBQ area was built on solid native ground. I have yet to build a little pergola over this bbq area.... been busy with other honey-do-this projects around the house.

I'm looking forward to the rain too.... Thanksgiving Day was waaay too warm for me.

Thanks, I completely forgot about this thread.
Here's a very recent picture taken of the bbq area. I'm currently working on the pergola you see in the background. You can check out the 'before' picture on the very post of this thread.

Thanks for sharing a recent pic, roadfix. I was just wondering the other day how your project was going. It looks really great - and yes, that's a spectacular view!
