Wednesday 2nd September 2015…Day9!!!

Had a really good sleep and was awake by 7am so before anyone else was up I put on my hiking shoes and went for a walk on the gravel road

I walked 7 km and I enjoyed the quiet, smell of the trees and I really wanted to see some animals but did not…the lake when I got back!!

The girls cooked a wonderful breakfast and then it was time for the boys to do some work…wood loading…..this was all new to me but we drove down this logging road for about 20 minutes and then stopped

So we got into a routine…..Doug was on the chain saw, Dale on the axe and Larry would carry the wood to the truck where I would stack the wood…

Once we had finished chopping because the chain saw ran out of gas…
