Muddy shoes……………..

Remember when I said “Screw It” ?

W-e-l-l,now that the weather has been perfect (sunny,dry,low humidity),it was time to begin on what I was ignoring.

With the help of Erich,the Younger,and Bob,my hard working friend,we set out to make a dent on the mucky mess that lives on the bank of the back of TheGreatWall.

No before photos,but some after’s…

This canal(it’s quite deep-boat navigable) connects a lake above us(via a dam) to our lake and our lake is connected (via a dam)to a lake below us.IMG_0840

There were snakes in there,but they were harmless.Black water snakes.No Water Moccasins,thankfully. A gator was heard,but not seen.Lots of water birds.Yep-there are fish in that water.Bass and Blue-gill,mainly.

As I write this,I’m kicking myself for the lack of photos.

The log will stay,as turtles like to sun themselves on it.Plus it’s waaay too big to remove.

The only thing hurt in this project was a bunch of muddy socks and shoes,a rake was lost/broken,and someone’s butt,who slipped and fell into the water(not me!).

Now,onto the final clean-up.

I need a new rake……..
