The construction side of the new Traxlers Surfside Cottage is now completed, as promised by the contractor, as of May 1, 2014. After spending the week getting the cabin set up and ready for use, Debi and I are very pleased to have the cabin ready (as promised) for my parents (Cal and Beverly) to be able to spend their 69th Wedding Anniversary there today (May 5). They spent their honeymoon at the original one room cabin on this site in 1945, and have spent the majority of their anniversaries here ever since. Our goal from the beginning of the project was to fulfill this promise, and with the great work of Jack Mobley our contractor, cooperation from the weather, and all other things construction related, the folks are at present enjoying their day of promise to each other. From then to now, the cabin has now changed dramatically, but the soul of this place lives on.
