Our First Pool Guest

Our pool project has been waiting for the natural rocks to be installed which happened this morning.  Everything went well and the rocks are nice; no scratches or marks from a backhoe on any of them. What do rocks cost you may ask?  They were $100 each, delivered and mortared into place.

We added the real stone rock features because we wanted our pool to look more natural.  I guess they look natural enough for this visitor who showed up an hour after the rocks were placed.  Beep beep!

We're going to have to name this guy.  This Roadrunner and another smaller one (a mate?) are always running around outside. 

In this photo and the top one you can see I've got some of the masonry primed.  7 gallons worth so far, looks like it's going to take another 10 gallons.

Shortly after I posted this blog I saw the two Roadrunners together.  By the time I got my camera one of them was gone but I was able to walk within 4 feet of this one and take these photos.


  1. I'm thinking that Roadrunner was looking a little primed as well:))

  2. Beep, Beep! Loved to watch that cartoon with our kiddos!
