Welcome to our Red-Neck Hot Tub.
It actually does not contain hot water,
but instead it is a cool place to unwind
on a hot summer day . . . and they are coming :)
If you are limited in space and like a pool for cooling off,
this is a great idea.
At least we sure enjoy it.
Steve has cut a hole in the side
and we have it hooked up to a small pool filter.
That roll of canvas along the back,
rolls out to keep it clean of leaves and dust.
If you have not recognized the tub,
it is a stock tank.
They are very sturdy, with a five year warranty
made for cattle kicking it and fighting for a shared drink.
The lanterns hanging over the top are solar powered,
so no mix of electricity and water,
and that little wooden star,
I picked it up at a yard sale in LaGrande.
I think it is the perfect place for a candle.
We like to sit out here on warm summer nights
and watch for shooting stars.
It makes a fun retreat for grand-kids, too.
This area is fenced in and has a trellis and gate to go through to enter.
It's a little private serene area to relax.
A little bit too hokey for some folks . . .
but it fits us to a tea :)
Have a great week
visit Steve's blog to see the progress on Gypsy Rose.
We have been sanding, taping and painting.
