Saturday September 3, 2022 Guerneville CA.
With it being a holiday and all, the best thing to do is stay home or at least in my territory.
I needed to talk to a neighbor that lives high in the hills about how to tap his spring so once I got it going I grabbed a part we needed to tap his spring and jumped on the motor bike and headed for the hills.
Dozer battery charging
It was a bit warmer than usual up in the hills, but most of the smoke had cleared out of the area since yesterday.
Dogs are home
Eventually someone poked their head out the door. They’d been hanging out in the back room so didn’t hear me right away.
Let’s do it
Rob was watching a tennis match. As soon as he could take a break from that, he said, well, let’s go tap the spring, so we got some tools together and some pipe and went over to the spring area in these big ferns.
No blue clary that we need
Without some solid blue clay to make the dam and the catch bowl, that was all we could do for today until we rounded up some clay somewhere. At least we got this far.
Fresh spring water
Headed to the pond
Rob thought he might have some blue clay around his pond so he suggested we go over there for a swim and he’d have a look for the clay around the edge somewhere.
He wasn’t successful with the blue clay but we were with the swim. I emptied my pockets and took off my shoes and socks and shirt and jumped in. I swam across the pond and back at my slow pace. It’s been a long time since I was last in a pond swimming. It felt great.
After shooting the bull with the gang, I left them enjoying the pond and went back to their house to get my bike and road on home taking the long way.
