Adobe Bricks

(Warning: This post may not be as exciting as watching mud dry.)

The adobe brickmaking project at the Santa Barbara Presidio is proceeding nicely. (See September 16th.)


The bricks have been tipped up onto their sides to present more surface area to the air. They're much dryer and harder. There's many more of them, too.


They look big. I think maybe 1' X 2' X 4". I wonder if I could lift one. Or if even the Parks Department guys could.

Naah. They'll probably use a forklift. Or a Mexican.
