Samantha decided to re-design the stone path alongside our house this weekend. When she tried to position one of the stones, she encountered what she thought was a large buried rock. This would not be surprising in New England.
Being a good husband, I offered to try extracting it for her.
An hour later, we were staring at the outline of the 6′ X 3′ X 2′ deep concrete fish pond.
We knew there had been a fish pond on the property at some point, we just weren’t expecting to encounter it right there.
Needless to say, we are going to re-bury it until the boys are older; right now it is on their bike raceway, and I don’t feel like adding a water obstacle to the raceway.
