The hunt for the filter holder

30th August 2011
The hunt for the filter holder was in vain . The water that I thought was maybe two or three feet deep turned out to be at least five feet deep ! Given that the filter hoder was made mainly of plastic it would have travelled a little bit before reaching the bottom. I had thought I would be able to stand in the water and feel around on the bottom , I made one attempt to lower myself in to the water but as the water almost reached my waist and I could not feel the bottom I pulled myself out again. Barry(my son) who had come to ensure my safety, had at this point, the video going on the iphone and was only encouraging me to continue !! Not sure what his motivation was !! But I suppose Dad getting a good soaking is always good for a laugh. It was at this point that Barry did the sensible thing and got a large stick from the forrest floor and used it to feel the bottom. The stick was five feet long and he just reached the bottom. We abandoned the rescue and I will just have to get the little plastic card out !! Here is a picture of the rescue site, the filter holder actually fell into the area in the bottom left of the picture.
