At the lakehouse. Been telling myself that I was gonna put lights in going down to the dock for 3 years. This weekend being so warm just got me fired up. After a trip to Lowe's (maybe 2), I can now find my way to the house in the dark...

1 step down, 19 more to go:

Hope you don't get any small aircraft trying to land at your place!

They're 12 volt led lights from Lowes. Each box is a set of 8 lights and around 16 feet of landscape power wire. Also came with a 6 watt transformer. Maximum of 16 lights per transformer.

Since I had 40 lights total and I wanted and auto dusk/dark switch, I bought a transformer separate. Cut the [;ug and wired into my breaker box at the top of the steps.

Doesn't use alot of juice and led's should outlive me.

Cigar is a Partagas 1845 Limited Reserve. Around 10 years old now. Just right with a glass of Hirsch Select 22 year old bourbon.

Very well done, sir. And a fine job on the lighting project.
