This heatwave has me beat.

I don’t want to hike much because it’s so hot, but with the beaches being packed, I’m afraid social distancing could be dodgy.  Not to mention the recent shark attack in Maine has me afraid to go in the water.

The alternative is finding a swimming hole, so I checked one of these out this weekend.

I was inspired by a list on, which has its own list you can check out to come up with a few of my own as well.

These swimming holes are shark-free.

As always, a reminder to never swim alone and tell someone where you are going and when you expect to be back.  There are no lifeguards at these spots so use extra caution.
