an evening swim


I was talked into going swimming at Blue Hole yesterday evening. Blue Hole is a length of Cypress Creek here in Wimberley, where the public is allowed access to the water. Most areas with any sort of water access are privately owned with well posted "no trespassing" signs. Normally this place is teaming with tourists, vacationers & local folks. Yesterday was a treat...around 6:30 p.m. or so, just a few people were out enjoying the water and company of friends. As one of my friends said, it is impossible to have any sort of bad thoughts while floating in this water. On 100+ degree temperatures, this cold water is just about heaven.

I love your style, this is fantastic. I need a spot like this to beat the heat.

It is indeed a great place to get away to. And it's a five minute drive away!

The nearest "cool" area like that for me is about 20 minutes away, but the current is fairly dangerous there, and it's just down river from the sewage treatment plant. Not as appealling eh?

Yikes...that doesn't sound like a wholesome swim. These swimmin' holes are far and few between these days. Kids these days have to go to big manmade waterparks for water adventures. Sad.
