Best Swimmin Hole in the County

Summer weather has started early and in full force. For those BdW readers from the Northwest, I know you know. Beautiful summer weather serves to make this place more spectacular than ever and you can't help but notice. For those of you not from the Northwest, just imagine: not too hot, but hot enough and green everywhere you look.

With the just hot enough days of late, I've been hitting up my new favorite swimming spot frequently. I think anyone who has ever swam at the quarry will agree, it is hands down the best swimming spot in the county—cliffs for jumping, clear water, and, best of all, no chumps because it is on private land*. Throw in some good friends, inner tubes and a canoe, and the sense of possibility and inspiration that comes from the land and the project and you've got an afternoon that can't be beat. Oh, and if you're lucky, you might just come away with a dozen fresh* eggs.

Freshly squeezed eggs are always good in the morning. Just be sure not to go swimming until 30 minutes after your omlette.

I can't believe you stole a picture that I took with a phone. That was fun, lets do more swimming (and projects) out there this summer.

Having visited this magical land, I can say that everything Wren says is true. This place defines "one-of-a-kind".

You can see fish jumping at the surface, and I was told they had it stocked.
