We have a pond!
Well, what began on the 28th January is now finally finished. Yep, that's right, we have a pond! It took almost three weeks to do the 15 hours of machine work, but it's there now, and it doesn't look like it's going anywhere any time soon!
The photos don't do it justice, but it is HUGE. Even the spillway is big.
Now we just need it to rain! Expect to see photos of us swimming on our property some time in August.
Of course, just because our pond is finished, doesn't mean the machine ordeal is over. The machine is still on our property and is broken down again. They will be going to the city to get parts tomorrow. Shame the bottom has fallen out of junk metal...
