time for a swim.......

The water is perfect...I walk upriver...then swim with the current down .....then I do it again....and again.....


The dogs love coming down to the river.......

That is far as old Jose will go.......

about 3 feet deep here....pristine, sparkling, mountain water....no industry on the Slocan River at all......

I walk way up there to start my swim.......

Here come some floaters......


Macey just loves swimming......

She is getting better at it all the time........
Now that the river has gone down we have a lovely little spot to swim.....

Hello Susan:
This looks to be an absolutely idyllic spot and to have it so close to home is, indeed, something very special. And the dogs, well certainly Macey, seem to enjoy it hugely.

Oh, that sounds awesome!!! The bottom looks rocky, not muddy...which is a good thing, right?

Amanda said...

you are fortunate to have this river to commune with......there is something sacred about having a relationship with any body of water but rivers have their own very special energy. you describe it so beautifully, sue~

That brings back so many memories for me -I grew up on the banks of a river. So much fun and so relaxing - I'm a wee bit jealous!

Oh, I have just arrived from swimming in the Danube, but this looks much much better. Is there any trail to bike around? :-)
