Cinder block creek crossing stepping stones

making creek steping stones with cinder blocks

Anchoring down these cinder blocks has our creek crossing feeling twice as stable as before.

It's a project we've been putting off for years.

I still doubt if we get any trick or treaters this year brave enough to hike across the creek, through the woods, and back to our trailer for a piece of candy.

You two are as likely to get trick or treaters as I am. It does not bother me a bit that I don't have to purchase candy.

Means more candy for you, right?

Everyone who actually makes it to the trailer deserves a treat, I think. ;-)

Good thing the people who make it out here are usually the sort who think that homegrown veggies are a treat. :-)
