Whispering Meadows

 Wednesday, Mart and I went down to Whispering Meadows to check on Joans painting project and we just happened to have the fishing poles along. 
 We caught plenty of little Blue Gills and then Mart hooked into this Kitty Cat.
 It was a good fight on a little ultra lite rig
 Big fish, little hook, No Bears!
Second day back at school.

 On campus.

School Starts in a Week.

 So what do you do when you've missed a trout because your fumbling for your camera and the next fish you hook takes a deep dive under a rock?   You hop right in and move the rock.
 And wallah  
 a smally
Caught by that rock.

 Friday night we put a skirt on the yurt platform.
 Josh was smoking ribs but the bucket needed more ventilation.
 Saturday afternoon we got the center post up.
 The lattes and the rafters went up quickly.
Tarp it up
And call it a night.

 Cut and install windows then muslin sides and roof.
 Same plan with insulation

The roof

The dome and vinyl  roof and sides.
And done!!!
Hot tub foundation.
Susie and I setup the staves. 
A cicada killer with it's victim was the first in the tub.

Now, its time to tighten the stainless steel rings.
