We’re still in that transition between winter and mud season, so I am trying to get things ready. The weather is getting warm, but the water is cold and the best low tides are before sunrise. On Wednesday (4/4), I decided to dig the sandy mud out of my pit. It needs to be stirred up, and also I wanted to try something in the pit before I put the mud back.
I shot some video while I was moving mud, and I edited so I could post it here. I’m not sure how interesting it is, since all I did was shovel mud and stir it up in the water tank. I would need another 100 gallon tank to get all the mud out of that pit.
I did start shooting a video, but the mud was still pretty cold and the air was just under 20C (~65F) with a cool breeze. I’ve been immersed in colder mud on similar days, but I just wasn’t feeling it, yesterday. I’m probably getting to old for that form of torture.
The mud in that mud pit is not very good mud. If I mix it up and put it back, it is pretty good, but it doesn’t take long for the sand to set up enough that I can walk on it. In any case, I made a big mess of everything, and I had some fun doing it. I’m going to add the video to this post, but it’s a pretty large file, so I may not leave it here for very long. I hope someone finds it interesting.
