I’ve been working on this thing since February. It’s insane that it took this long, but when you see the pile of rocks, you’ll understand why. It was very much like pulling teeth, scraping at hard packed dirt and extracting those rocks one at a time. If my new kiln wasn’t being held ransom by the completion of this project I might have given up.
The pond is dedicated to Sobek. I buried a little handmade gator figurine in his honor. I could practically feel him grinning from ear to ear when the water went in, which is not at all hard for a croc to do.
The fish will go in next weekend, and I still plan on adding more rocks and maybe a small waterfall at the shallow end.
