Best Swimming Hole

Barton Springs Pool

A hole with room enough for the toddler, the paddler, the Olympic stroke-meister, the exuberant diver, the sub-mariner, and the drifter, floating along on his back under the shade. Plenty of room, too, to stretch out in the sun after the water and warm up again.
