Seventies Summer: Swimming

Did you go swimming a lot when you were a kid? 

When I was growing up, we lived in town and during the summer either mom would take us to the pool, or we’d ride our  bikes. Those days are among my best childhood memories. 

Back then, there was a high dive and a low dive and my amazing mom used to go off the boards. She’d swim with us and we’d stay at the pool all day. 

I never forgot how fun it was to go to the pool with mom, so I used to take Little Bit to our local pool a lot. Then, they closed it and now the nearest town pool is 40 miles away. 

But here’s something cool, we can go swimming any time we want, thanks to some good old fashioned swimmin’ holes a mile down the road. 

My husband, Little Bit, and I headed down to the river this morning. I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshing that water was. 

We still make the drive to go to regular swimming pools as well, but swimming in that river is pretty big treat.
