Summer Fun: Swimming in the River

5 pm

Ah… Summer. One of my favourite things about summer is swimming. I LOVE water and I’ve always been a water baby. So much so that I’ve gone swimming in alpine lakes and glacier fed rivers like the one at my parent’s cabin. Luckily it’s been super hot over the last two days, so swimming in a cold river is more of a treat that anything. (Who am I kidding? I’d probably be in the water as long as it was above 15C and not raining.)

Our usual “swimming hole” is a whirlpool deep enough that you can’t touch the bottom. Yesterday, I went swimming by myself while my mom did a bit of work. Unsurprisingly, she had to come and tell me to stop when was time to head back into town. I was having too much fun!

Who knew my leg went that high while I dived?

Tonight, Mr. Bean and I headed out there for dinner and to cool down. However, our plans to be cooled down by swimming were foiled as a thunderstorm came through and did it for us. Being me, I was still determined to go swimming despite it being cooler and much later in the day, so understandably our swimming was much shorter than the day before!

I’ve been on a bit of a panorama kick lately, so I couldn’t resist making one of our swimming spot. I really like it, but I’m curious to see if anyone can spot evidence that the panorama is a composite.
