While putting together the tables we heard the Wayland Fire Department was here tackling a brush fire. One of our owners was burning some leaves and it jumped into the trees and soon there was a pretty good brush fire. Wayland did a great job of containing everything. They even brought a water tanker in and filled it from our lake. If you every wonders what the white pipe was coming out of the ground on the dam, that's the lake water access for the fire department. Worked like a charm.
Back to work, moved tables and worked on the sand the rest of the afternoon. Was able to thrown a line in the water early evening and caught Crappie after Crappie. They were fun. Released them all back into the lake. Good size fish.
Today, Sabe Goetz came down with their power auger (Thanks Chris and Sabe) to set me up with a few holes for mounting the bench and what will be the grill. That saved my back, or at least Antonio's. Mixed some concrete, set the bench next to the tree above the beach. Gerald Poulter showed up with the power tree saw and trimmed the tree for me, thanks Geralds.
Came back, power washed the cabin for 3 hours. My neighbor, Jamison, came over and said there was another brush fire by the burn pile next to the dumpsters. Went and notified Gerald. Bob Bergman, Antonio, Gerald and I battled the next blaze. It was an easy one but on a steep hill. Got that knocked down and then the rest of the evening was pretty peaceful. Here are a bunch of photos from Friday and Saturday.
