Tuesday April 11, 2023 Guerneville CA.
Barry was in the yard with his truck and motor bike as I was getting it going today. I took another drink of coffee and joined him for a ride up into the hills riding around in the forest.
We headed for the hills and rode around for a bit. This was the first place we stopped to look for some mushrooms. We found some but they were old.
One of the views as we rode through here.
Eventually we ended up at our main spring for a drink of water.
There’s not much better water than fresh clean spring water popping out of a hillside.
It just keeps coming out of the hillside and doesn’t cost anything.
Ridge top view
From there we made our way up to my cousin’s place to the ridge top.
Barry decided to put his hammock up for the season.
He crawled into it for a break.
I found a place on the ground with some wild flowers. We had a good long break here.
Eventually we left there and rode around some more, making our way back to my place.
Barry took off for home and I went in and finished my coffee.
Then I went out to put these two metal roofing sheets up on the chickens roost as the plastic ones that were up there took quite a beating last winter.
Enjoying the day
That didn’t take long, then I did some chair hopping around the yard with the chickens.
I sat around the yard for most of the afternoon. But a couple hours before dark, I decided to put together a metal bridge, or more like a walk to cross a creek.
Making a metal walk way
I rounded up these short pieces of 8 inch steel channel and took them over to my welder to weld them up to make them long enough for the job.
I welded the pieces up to make a walkway about ten feet long and that was enough for the day.
