Birth of the pool

Yesterday the contractors arrived to start construction of the swimming pool, all paperwork is in place so excavation begins, access is difficult so a small digger arrived and squeezed through the gap between the house and the wall, the alternative was to knock down the wall, instead there was a justchip taken out the corner of the house, Quin says 15 minutes to fix.
surprisingly the ground is mainly sand and boulders and hard work for the digging machine, temperatures are in the mid to high 30ś and the engine of the digger keeps overheating, but at least it gives the workmen a break from the intense heat. At least the excavated ground is not having to be carted away as there was lower terrace to the garden that we are infilling.
