Mermaid’s Pool

As a child one of the highlights of my existence was visiting a place called Mermaid’s Pool where a dam had been built across a small river that spilled down a massive granite rock whose surface was very smooth and slippery.

Sun lovers would picnic on either side of the water flow and when the mood took them they’d slide down the rock face on inflated inner tubes (of various sizes) to the pool below, taking care not to hit the ridge at the water line.

Here is an ancient movie of Mermaid’s Pool – I don’t know who took it.
