The construction of the pool's lower deck progressed quickly during the two weeks we stayed at Gallows.

Here's a pic that I took Saturday morning, just before we departed for STT.

Ahkil says that the deck surface will be tile. It should be finished by mid-July.

Quick update...just came home from a week at Gallows this past Tuesday...they still have the lower deck leading to the catwalk taped off as a "construction site", but we simply went under the tape and made our way down the walk. Only once did anyone say anything to us about not using it.

Could you tell us how far along they have gotten on the pool construction?

Sorry, just saw your question. Mgmt. told us they are still on track to have it finished by October. Given the apparent slow pace of progress, I didn't come away with a ton of confidence in their statement...but I guess miracles can happen! It looks like they still have an awful lot to do to hit that deadline. But, it looks like the new pool area will be really nice when finished. I meant to take a picture or two of the pool area during the week, but I was back on the ferry heading home before I knew it!! :(
