Natural Swimming Pools

One of my favorite things in this world to do is go swimming.  I grew up in a place dubbed "The City of Lakes", and it was on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.  Pristine, clean and clear swimming spots were all around me.
Here in the South that is not so much the case.  Swimming is something you do only in heavily chlorinated pools and the too polluted for me, Gulf of Mexico.  Did I mention it gets HOT, like really freakin' hot! Which I mostly adore but sometimes you just need some relief. Enter Natural Swimming Pools or Ponds , man-made but built to look and feel like they belong there. Imagine~a perfect swimming hole without pollution, harsh chemicals or bacteria. Perfectly in tune with nature and the surrounding landscape. I dream of these pools...
