That Puddle

We have a puddle in our yard... well it is not really a puddle but a hole we are getting ready to put the 30,000 litre water tank in.  You can see the sence of scale when comparing the water tank to the trampoline just beside it.

Unfortunately the water table on our land is very high and when you dig down water comes to the surface and this is what is causing our puddle, along with some rain.  This photo shows what happens after you have pumped the puddle out and you can see the bottom. 

This all leads to my photo from Wordless Wednesday  .  Andre asked if he could rescue Haydens gumboots, which had been thrown in the hole when it was 3/4 full of water.  Without looking I naturally said yes.  The next moment he is there in front of me in his swim suit and goggles waiting to get wet.

So knee deep in water, in he gets and the wet gumboots are found.  We all spent the next 10 minutes laughing especially as the swim suit and goggles did not get wet.

I scrapbooked this.
