I just wanted to get out a new update on recent progress at Coconutz RV Park.
We have brought in some fine gravel to help solidify the sandy areas where vehicle travel was a little on the “iffy” side. This is a product that packs down well, and should help eliminate any problems driving into and around the park.
There are new concrete steps from the park onto the beach.
We built a gate out of locally cut palm wood pickets, which were cut to order right in Cuyutlán. At the advice of the lumber yard, we then treated the palm wood with motor oil for a finish. The color is a rich reddish brown. I suspect that it will grey with age, and sun exposure. We will see.
We also put the new gravel on the walkway to the beach gate. This helps define where the path to the beach is.
In an effort to discourage foot traffic through the park and out to the beach, we have constructed a simple rail fence along the boundary lines We have planted many new plants, including cannas and oleanders.
And while we have gotten rave reviews on the bathrooms and showers, we were not really happy with the hot water pressure, so we installed an “on demand” electric water pump on the hot water intake pipe to the water heater. Now there is much better pressure, for an even more enjoyable hot shower in each of the bathrooms.
