footprints at Bothwell

November 17, 2009:  Today, we are pouring concrete and I’m all set to place some tracks in the wet mud.

I have each pawprint in a sandwich bag, the rocks preselected, and I lay them out for the contractor.

he places the pads, toe by toe, step by step

and he floats them out, just so.

a more typical job for these guys would be a Caltrans job, but in this economy they’ve ventured into doing a playground pour. A change of scale, and change of pace for them.

These pads are leading up to the jug filler by the sand lot. Once the park opens, they’ll be covered in wet sand, waiting to be discovered by a tot-engineer-in-training.
