The Watering Hole - Take #2643

So, yet again.. never satisfied, I've changed the 'pool' a little more. This time.. I filled in half of what I dug out previously.. all to get a little grass on the side. IMHO it looks a lot better now.. and still has a little area for 'swimming'.. or rather.. wading. Always good for a hot day.. or after a run. Just jump on in.. instant satisfaction! No need to wait for the bath to fill. 

What a mission.. I must have forgot how much effort it took to move the earth in the first place.. putting it back was just as hard.. but theres always a good side to something bad.. and in this case.. its the exercise.. and general sense of satisfaction. So yeah, here are the photos. What is next.. who knows!?

Some of the water wheels I've made from plastic 'future' board. 

Maybe I could wire them up and reap the hydroelectric power.. FREE ENERGY! haha

This is an apple snail.. there are so many of them! They grow quite big... have big tentacles.. and generally look pretty weird. Surprisingly they move quite fast, at least for a snail.
