The Koi pond is a favorite place for kids at weddings, and sometimes the fish even surface, or I give them a little extra food to make them appear. There alway seems to be a fascination with ponds and fish for children. The gurgling jug as I call the other fountain in the back courtyard was a replacement for one that was leaking when we arrived. We got it over on 8th street at Well Tavelled Living and then drilled a hole in the bottom for the cord, sealed that with silicone, filled it with rock and started listening to the sound of water.

The town has been experiencing a visitor recently in the form of a large white Egret. Normally located near marshes and streams, I’m guessing he is about town searching for the secluded but reachable Koi and fish ponds. As a later picture shows he visited the woman who lives next door to check out her fairly large Koi pond. He came so often she has now decided feeding Egret’s is not one of her hobbies and has given away the Koi and closed the pond. We have a smaller Koi pond at the Williams House, but apparently he hasn’t found it yet, or the fish hide effectively near the bottom. I noticed our resident attack cat Cinnamon was no where to be found when a worthwhile adversary showed up. When you operate a bed & breakfast you’re never really sure when your next visitor will be arriving!
