Well, the best laid plans of mice and men gang oft agley, as Bobby Burns said.
Here’s the outcome of my earlier plan for a fixed-position floating sailboat
I started working on the next steps of the pond, installing the liner and the first section of “rock on a roll” that’s intended to hide the liner.
While filling the pond, I had some help–I don’t know why playing with the hose is always so interesting 🙂
Here in Kansas, the wind is a constant problem in the garden. Gusts up to 40mph regularly move things around (including buildings) and wreck havoc.
I’ve been thinking about putting a boat in my pond when it’s done, but with the wind it would need to be anchored somehow. Add to that the possibility of water-level fluctuations, and there’s a problem–if the water gets low and the wind blows, the boat could possibly wind up on shore.
The hole you see here
will be a pond in the rear of the layout. Once I scrape together enough money for the materials, I’ll cut the concrete roadbed you see at the back of this image and remove it, replacing the on-the-ground track there with a bridge.
Still not much actual “garden” in the train area. You’ll notice that the weeds are doing fine, though 🙂
