All Dried Up

July 4 weekend and not a drop of water in the frog pond, not to mention no frogs in sight. This is the stream and pond that was kept so we would always have a permanent water supply. The water wagons for the loggers used to fill up here all summer. I don't remember ever seeing the pond completely dry and especially not at the beginning of the summer.  Comparison photo to follow later in the fall

Happy July 4th

Happy July 4th from Jane, Paul, Lou, Ann and Willy. All of whom spent the holiday here.  In typical Emmert fashion, Ann and Jane relaxed by powerwashing and putting a coat of preservative on the deck. Lou and Paul were a bit more relaxed.  The deck does look better.

Van Vleets joined us for a fun dinner on the 5th. There were 9 of us at the old fire circle, but no photos.
