This park is so pretty but I'm not a big fan of swimming in ponds.
We've had a of rain lately so the pond is a little on the dirty side which didn't help my not wanting to go in. And I'm not a fan of water that doesn't move.
The Island King and his daughter called me chicken repeatedly but I'm not one to give in to peer pressure and their taunts did not deter me.
They had no problem running and jumping off the end of the dock but I decided I'd hang in the kiddy pool.
They played in the water, which he said was at least 95 degrees as far down as 6 feet.
The Island King did his version of the Hillbilly Plunge
But they didn't want to swim long because the water was more like a hot tub than a refreshing creek.
And we had a quick picnic on one of the tables in the shade.
I have issues with snakes in dark pond water but sharks in salt water at sunset? Not a problem.
