So, you know how I'm always saying that I wish I had pictures of such and such to show you? But I tend to forget my camera. And photos are a pain in the hiney to upload and resize. But guess what? I love you guys enough that I remembered my camera this time when we went to the river, and I took the time to resize the photos and upload them for you! Excited? Sure you are.
So here it is. My new favorite swimming hole. All shady and secluded. Quiet and clean. The water is so clear, as you can tell. That hole there beneath the big rock? Looks like you could wade out in it, right? Yeah. That hole is about 7-8 feet deep. For real. I dive off of the rock on the left all the time. The boys like jumping off the big rock on the right the best.
The shade got a little chilly after swimming, so we headed down stream to the sunshine for a while and the boys dug for crawdads. That's my hubby in the red and white shorts and our friend and his two kids.
I'm not brave enough to grab a crawdad. The guys found several, from teeny tiny to scary looking. I'm not sticking my fingers in there.
See why I love Sunday afternoons at the river? Hopefully there will be several more before the weather turns too cool. Of course, I'm thinking a little fall photo shoot in this location would be beautiful. Don't you think?
