Another log in the pilings

I should have gotten my camera out earlier. Here James has already sawed the log in two and it's fallen off its perch - the undercarriage of the building. At about half tide, it had come to rest completely off the ground somewhere between high and low water mark. This was certainly not the monster log of early January, but it did stretch nearly the width of the building. Earlier in the day, Lee tried to push it back into the river with the pike pole, but the log would have none of that.

Here you can see the log after the first cut.

. . . and James finishing it up as the tide started rising again. Note all the mossy green. Yeah, the water covers all that two times a day.

Actually, there was one piece thumping this morning. I should have listened when James suggested taking them out. Lee had said the same thing, but I didn't realize it at the time. The water's a little rough today, so maybe it will float out on its own. Otherwise, we'll have to get James some more chain saw oil.
