    Yes, yes we did. What a great way to cool down!

    Plus, a neighbor kid threw a little toy air boat in a month ago and the AAA battery popped out. I found it in between the big boulders on the back edge. Had to deconstruct and reconstruct to get it, but it's out. I wonder if it would have done any damage after eroding...

    Lol, that's no fun. I thought it would be warmer after a day in the mid 80s with pure sunshine, but it wasn't too warm, it was just right. Might be because the middle section is 5.5 feet deep and acts as a cold sink to counteract the hot rocks on top.

    That looks like fun. I would do that in mine, but would need to remove a turtle first. He thinks I am food, when I get in the pond to do anything, he comes swimming over to nip at my legs and toes.

    I do! I've made a giant word doc of the whole pond transformation, but still need to take the time to morph that into the showcase format here. One of these days...
