This is the gazebo which adjoins to the arbor from the beginning of the
tour. I hope this explains the 2000 bricks. My neighbour's house (in
the background) is no longer visible from this view owing to a cedar
hedge which adds a couple more feet of privacy each year. This area used
to be occupied by an aluminum shed. I was too embarrassed to show a
photo. The entire work (brick and wood) took about two years to complete.
The Gazebo Through the Arbor
You're looking into the gazebo through the entrance of the arbor. To
the right is a little forest area which simulates the natural style of
the bruce peninsula. If you have your screen bright enough, you'll see
that the walkway under the arbor sinks down two steps and then goes back
up two steps. Though I now think it looks great, I added this feature
after my father kept bumping his head on the arbor. It was either lower
the walkway or raise the arbor.
