The Brandywine...

Somehow we discovered this special place along the Brandywine River. 

You're driving along a two lane, rough paved, highway then suddenly, to your right, are parking spots. 

only about 5 spots for small cars. 

and a little stairway leading down an unseen path. 

Husband brought us here. 

We wandered down the stairs with the kid and discovered a complete summer sanctuary.

dropping green trees, pebbles, and river water so clear you can see every rock. 

its a forge, where you can wade through, only up to your knees in most spots. 

looking west, you can see a few teens in a swimming hole, much deeper. 

they're dangling from a rope swing, screaming with fun. 

the three of us wade, pick up rocks, throw pebbles, and realize - 

its abram's first time in a river! 


there are not many swimming hole around there parts - but theres this:) 


These were made with my awful cheap phone, so the quality is shaky... 


but the point was, I actually remembered to take some pics. Me for once! 

Abram rode home naked as a jay bird, his wet clothes piled in the back. 

We plan to come back - often! 

My only wish is that we'd known of it sooner... 

It felt like such good country fun!
