Pool work

Our pool was pretty sad...plaster was coming off the bottom and the rust was seeping through and the flagstone was coming loose.  Never mind all the tiles that had fallen off and sunk to the bottom--it was like a pool game to see who could dive down and retrieve tiles the fastest.  It was definitely time for a redo.  The new tile was definitely not my first choice (I would have opted for a more natural finish to go with the surrounding unstructured stone) but the rest of the family loved the glossy blue tile (unpictured) so I was outvoted.  Here are some progress shots:

The boys were pleased to stand aside and watch while the jackhammers worked.  I was pleased to pretend to take a picture of them when I was really aiming at my pretty hydrangea.
