Fun in the Pond

The mini pond we helped built is now operational. It is now brimming with fresh water and tilapia fingerlings. We had so much fun building it with my kids and their cousins in attendance.
Now we have more excitement in feeding the fishes with floaters/fish meal. It is very relaxing to the mind and soul watching the fishes during feeding time :-D

We are now excited in seeing these little creatures turn into big tilapias ready for our fishing rods and baits! :-D

Mini Tub, Many Uses

This mini tub is built of rocks and cement with clear and sparkling water coming from the spring underneath the pebbles. This is one of the best places for a soak in the backyard of our home. The tub is perfectly sized for a few kids, about 1.5 feet deep, and has a very cold temperature. The tub is located just below our pond, affording everybody an awesome backdrop. Very primitive and natural.

We decided to have this tub built for many reasons, to wit;
washing clothes and linens
outdoor playing spot for the kids
distressing while soaking in the cool waters and listening to the sound of its mini waterfall
serving as alternate pond for the tilapia fingerlings :-D

We still have a lot of things to do to make this little paradise truly presentable so as make it very inviting for everybody but for the meantime, we can already start enjoying the pristine waters of this mini tub :-D
