Not everyone is retired

There are some very hard working people and we watch them with awe and horror. Larry, Margo, and Amanda King are building their home on the north side of Manjack. They constructed the house in the states, disassembled it, and loaded it on a boat to reassemble here. Once all their heavy equipment, tools, and house components were dropped off on the beach; they had to clear a road through poison wood and sea grape to move it across the island to their building site. Their progress is amazing. Here they are raising 40 foot poles in holes that they've bored 9 feet into the ground. This is especially remarkable in light of the miserable poison wood rashes that they have acquired and Larry's unfortunate altercation with a chain saw.
