First Find a Lake

And a Boat Crew

Plus Puppy and Puss Passengers

And Sail Away

To the Shores of Sticky Mud and Reeds

And Get Digging

The Passengers Prefer to Play

....and Play

Until its Time to go

Don't Forget the Rudder

Sailing Home

Stick Mud, Brick Frames

Out Come the Bricks

They aren't light

Mud bricks go on

The estate agent surveys door and windows

- Suitable for hobbits

Time for roof and reeds

And more reeds

One Weary Thatcher

and two pretty girls decorate the door

Getting there

Seeking Shade

While older sisters look on

Ready to move in

Time To Cool Off

Puss decides its time for a swim

But prefers rafting

"I wanted to build something elemental, made out of water, mud, reed, sky, sun...into which elements it will gradually return. Also I was reminded of Yeats poem 'the Lake Isle of Innisfree'

"I will arise and go now and go to Innisfree And a little cottage build there of clay and wattles made......And always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore...."
