In August, I decided to make a wave pool in my backyard.

It was about 11 feet high and stretched across the whole lot.

The wave was made with paper and then spray painted.

And a trough of water ran through in a circle.

Some friends came over to cool off in the water.

Debbie Tuch was there.

Andy Hershey and Bob the cat.

Here is what the wave looks like now.
