MY RIVER to swim in



I love water and living beside a creek and a river across the street is very cool.

Since moving to this house, I have gone swimming in my river several times during the hot summer days we get out here in Oregon. It is always so refreshing to jump into that cold water when your body is sooo hot. Of course it takes your breath away each time but once you get accustomed to the temperature of the water, its not bad at all.

My grandkids always come over and swim and bring their friends…of course its no fun swimming alone so I always encourage them to have a buddy to swim with. 

I figured with the cold temps outside, a nice cool dip in a river would take your mind off of the brrrrrr of the cold.

Picture above is of the river when one of the kids jumped in and made a big splash.

    • I used to fish in this river when we first moved here, but the Fish and Game have stopped any fishing to let the fish repopulate. These are trout and I guess they got fished out….and the migration of salmon and steelhead in the fall and they lay their eggs and then die. but it is nice and clean to swim in and it does get kinda warm in the hot summer months…warm enough so we dont freeze on impact…LOL.
