the waterhole

There are some folks who camp near this waterhole every year. They dig out the steps, build the dam to deepen the water hole for swimming. It's basically their bathroom for the 20 days they're here. They do a fine job at taking care of the place.
This year they even left us the rope swing. 

We call it the Death Swing of Doom. 

The seat of the swing is an upcycled piece of fencepost with a lethal point to it. Super fun for the vigilant person who is pushing the swingee, you almost get skewered if you get the timing wrong!
It wouldn't pass a health and safety test but sheesh it's fun. Is it just me or does the danger aspect add a certain charm?!
