The Water Weekend …… or should I say week!


the fun begins …
In March 2010 before we moved to the farm we spent a few days here digging out an old Canal System with the hope to bring water to the farm.. from 3 farms away.
.. and yes Success!!!
We woke up the next morning to water gushing into the property at the top end “highest point!!!  and we were camped at the bottom end…. put 2 and 2together…
and then it rained!!!  … we asked for water and we got it!
The car got stuck in mud, the trailer got stuck, our shoes got stuck…  now we had to spent a “few” days extra .. we came for the weekend and left 10days later.
We ran out of supplies so tried fishing for two days..  no luck so the next day we decided to collect some of the abundant crabs and made crab stew..  Candice liked them the best “or she was really hungry”, Byron battled to stomach them… Matti munched away happily …
.. we survived and now we have delicious spring water flowing on the property.
