|Should have used a bigger barrow!|
Scooping the silt out of the culvert was a pretty messy job but made even messier with the rain and messier still with a team of 3 little helpers! Water, mud and wheelbarrows - the 3 biggest and best attractions!!
|Washing muddy hands for the umpteenth time!|
We bucketed out the water and, with a long handled scoop, filled 3 or 4 wheelbarrows full with silt and disposed of the contents down in Cato's Corner. Having done that, Chris retrieved a wheelbarrow full of pebbles which Elissa and I washed - each one individually! Definitely the world's messiest job! Afterwards, the sun came out and we had a bonfire. Yes, of course were soaking wet and covered in mud but, who needs toys? Result: the submersible light in the culvert looks really pretty at night again and everyone had a ball!
