This is Swimming Pool #6. It is the biggest and bestest pool yet!
This fabulous backdrop for some of my more recent photos is my old swimming pool, AKA #5. I actually did swim in it three times but I also really did hate it. My fish weren’t too happy in it, either, though the heron seemed to like it real well.
I thought Swimming Pool #5 was just going to stay like this forever. Winter was turning to spring, the grass was starting to grow, and that old tin can was still there.
All of a sudden one day, I was trapped on the kitchen deck and the tin can started to move!
It started to roll away like a giant hamster wheel!
The tin can is moving toward the aviary.
It is too big to go through the aviary gate.
They cut a hole in the top netting of the aviary because the tin can has to go up and over.
If they drop it, the seams could bust and then it would leak.
They have to fine-tune the space for it. The pool is set into the hillside.
Let’s go take a look.
There is a hose filling it with water.
There are a few steps. Ducks have short legs.
It takes a long time to fill the duck pond.
This is all very interesting, but I’m still not going to swim in it!
I used to love to barge in here and swim in the duck wading pools. This is a little intimidating.
The chickens and I do NOT approve!
I know where there is a muddy but warm wading pool!
