Chop Wood

In the hills above Portosin we found a couple of interesting people. One of them was a woman who lived alone with her two dogs. She must have been well over sixty years old, yet she showed us how she still chopped her wood for the fireplace.It was a way of chopping as I never had seen before: she would hit the wood with her axe and then she would hit the chopping block again with the back of the axe first and the wood-to-be-chopped on top of it. She did it with great precision and it worked out great.
