Riding Up the Hill and Soaking My Feet

Ride up the hill

I was headed up to a neighbors today who lives up on  the hilltops. I took this road to get over to his property.road1


And went through the hole in the fence on the left as I can’t seem to remember the gate combination.gate2


I rode on up the road on my neighbor’s property.road5



They have some good views from up here.view3


The ocean is on the other side of the far hill.view4


They were home so we sat around and shot the bull for a bit.

Their Easter lily is blooming nicely.lillies6


The pond

They were headed to the pond, so I said I’d go with them and  stay for about ten minutes then leave.lake7


Feet in the water

Rob said, take that chair to the water’s edge, sit down, and put your feet in. So I did and stayed shooting the bull with Rob for about an hour before I took off.water8


Back on our place, I rode on down this trail.trail9


Spring work

I stopped at this spring I’ve been working on to move some dirt.spring10


No more dirt slid down off the hill while I was gone. Now, I need to dig out the rest of this slide to tap the spring.slide11


I wasn’t into it much so only moved a little dirt before I quit. I’m throwing it on the road where the bull dozer can smooth it out later. Hey, moving a little dirt is better than none to get the job done.dirt12


Once home, I had a nap before going back outside and enjoying the day, not doing much of anything.

Nice day.

    Such a treat to soak your feet.

    I think spring tending is one of the highest callings in the world.
    Surely one of the most gratifying. Or maybe it’s just interfering. Nah. It’s a good thing.

      Yes, it is very satisfying. The problem these days is there is almost no one that knows how to take care of a spring tap. If I have the time, I stop to fix them when I’m on the road. I once got one going on a big cattle ranch that had changed hands and they didn’t even know where the spring was to feed their water tanks, nineteen miles away, out in the desert. I fixed it before I met them and later found them out in the desert taking care of their animals and was able to fill them in on it. They didn’t think I was interfering and game me much thanks.
