Mystery Vacation: Day 2

The pool at our mystery vacation spot is filled twice a week with fresh mountain spring water, eliminating the need for chlorine and other assorted chemicals.  Refreshing yes, but bone chilling -- I typically walk down the steps, dive under, and high tail it out.  nona-son-the-younger claims this pool is his "go to pool".  After a filling dinner of tomatoes, grilled chicken, pickles, and apple pie I'm off to hang out on the porch, play a little cribbage, and knit a sock from the toe up. 

The chilly mountain spring pool is enjoyed by
the young-at-heart and polar bears.

Cold and Refreshing!

Knitting from the toe up? Not side-to-side? Sounds like the nona-family's having a great time.

Dude, I swear that's this camp up the Mckenzie Highway in Oregon. Most likely not, but the scenery looks familiar. And fun!

Are you at Kellerman's from Dirty Dancing?

I have no idea where you are, but it sounds wonderful. I love to play cribbage but I don't know anyone of my friends who can play. My DH hates it because I always win (he can't get the hang of pegging).

My guess is that you are in Ouray, CO. That pool scene reminds me of my trip to Durango. We went driving around and stopped in Ouray about 6 yrs ago. It was in May around Memorial Day and it was SNOWING and people were swimming in the pool! I love how it looks like a little Swiss village!

Sounds like you're enjoying your vacation. I need to get away myself.

What do they do with all the water when they drain it? I hope they use it to water the golf course or something.

I agree--you're on the set of Dirty Dancing.

I have just now discovered your wonderful blog. I am curious that it end at Nov 2007. Have you moved your web-site or just retired? Would love to follow you! Monica

Yeah, the place really looks familiar. I wonder how it looks like by now.
