The Old Swimming Hole

Hi!  It's Guinness.  We are close to home but on a path we have not 'splored' before, if you can believe that one!  Well, we come across this little pond way down in the gorge--see?

UH OH! Maggi HEARS the water. Maggi SMELLS the water! Maggi LOVES the water and Maggi wants IN that water!


DOUBLE UH-OH! Maggi starts heading down the bank. She is very bold. The humans always have to watch her close because she is a bit too confident.

Oh please watch this short video--watch Maggi find her way down.  Remember she has never been here before and is completely blind.  WOW! SMART MAGGI!

Well looks like Mags finds the water and has a little cool-off.  Hey, this place is neat!

There is a pretty old stone wall.  I wonder who built it.  I wonder how old it is? We climb back up.

  When we get home our human dad tells us it is the OLD TOWN SWIMMING POOL!  When he was a little boy it was dammed off and flooded to make a big pond.  He said there would be hundreds of kids here all summer and that is where they took swimming lessons!


I like all the old stories and the lost history.  It is fun to think about huh?  Plus it is a good way to keep my mental faculties well exercised.  Til next time....love Guinness.
