... months away from going into the pool. Here are a few more pictures.
I managed to work some on the pool Sunday between the 5K Riverfest Run that Rowan ran in as part of Girls on the Run, (she finished in a very respectable 41 minutes) dance rehearsal, the GOTR banquet and the season opener for my D league softball team.
I was able to find the entire perimeter. The pool is roughly a right triangle. I had thought it would be more kidney shaped. Each "leg" is about 8 feet long and the "hypotenuse" is nearly 12 feet. The shallower side of the small end that I completely excavated is 18 inches deep. It appears that it will get deeper as I dig toward the wide end.
All the dirt I dug I dumped into the garden. After I finished around the outside I realized the irony that I am recreating Helen and Bess' steps, in digging around the edge first then digging out the middle.
