I love the sunshine!

By | May 13, 2016

Another day of wandering around ended up in this great looking place. I checked a spot to see if it was soft but it wasn’t really. A bit more prodding got me a few inches down before I struck a harder layer.

It is in a beautiful daytime fun area too!

So on a hunch I went back with a shovel. I realized there’s a LOT of roots in that top layer. Underneath that is clay. Gorgeous clay that I’ve only seen a few times before! I don’t know how deep that layer is but based on the surrounding area, I’m guessing it’s going to be deep enough.

It chews up into this viscous silky clean mud that seems to coat these synthetic fabrics and literally peels off after the fun part is over. I’m guessing that’s because the clay really holds water while the clothes are mostly dry going in, but either way it’s kinda neat.

So, there’s a bit of a pond there so I will be able to work with this as my main pit for the time being. I can see surrounding houses through the trees, but I can’t see in very far from the road. A little bit more of this nice warm weather should help fix this 🙂 Even more, it is very tempting to mash a huge section of this pond into a deep clay soup.  Ah yeah, proper footwear!
