We rented the back hoe again and Emily and Jahn met us down at the house and helped us to try and dig the ditch from the well head to the house. Not so easy!!!! The ground is so rocky that it was really hard to do! Could not get the pipe to go under the road so we will have to cut into the road at a later time. We did get the line dug from the house about 1/2 of the way to the well. Brian and Jahn took turns running the back hoe and the rest of us filled in the ditch with sand, water line and electrical cord. We also used the back hoe to get supplies up to the old water system to get ready to dam it up again. A frustrating day as we did not get as much done as we wanted to do, but it is a start!
Madi and Unah were there too and we all took turns going down to the beach with them. Wonderful sunny day! And they really enjoyed the water!

Went down to the house today to take a few things down and to visit with Richard and Marda and Kelsey. They were staying in our trailer for a few days. They are buying Phillip's property. Nice to have the property stay in the family! They will be great neighbors. Richards sister Liz and his Dad, Richard Sr. were there too so we had a great visit and gave them a tour of the house in it's state of "deconstruction".
