Road Repairs

After two near misses at going over the hill, I decided that it is time to do some repairs.  Francisco had a load of rocks delivered for "empandrado" which is a road system with large rocks on the dirt and cementante (a cement like material that naturally hardens) filling in the spaces.

It starts off as just a pile of rocks

This is before

It's a good thing this camera has a fast shutter speed; I was moving pretty fast!

Foreground, rocks in dug out portion;background, hole I dug.

Covered with cementante; looks just like the before picture but without the holes!

The two sections we completed yesterday took only two hours but working in the sun with the temperature in the 80s, it was more than enough work for this old guy in one day.  The breeze blowing through the house seemed to feel better than normal as I settled down for a siesta.
