Bonne Terre

A visit to a lovely old mining town in Missouri.

And now you are thinking “why would you want to visit an old mining town?”.

Well, Jacques Cousteau visited and stayed for an entire week…so why not?!

There is a mine in a little town called Bonne Terre.

It is an old lead mine flooded with spring water. Caving is a lot of FUN! I love exploring…and this was exploring underwater! We had the most wonderful time and I had the chance to capture photographic evidence of it all too! People, pictures and fun times! What more could a girl ask for?!

The dive leaders and staff at West End Diving were extremely nice, patient and very helpful. We had a wonderful weekend vacation and made a lot of fun adventurous memories. Thank you to all that were there…visiting or working…Divers are a great group of people!

Good-Bye Spring Flowers, Hello Summer Fun!

Today is the day of summer’s official arrival. In Oklahoma, they are expecting 100 degree days for this weekend…so I hear. Me, I don’t mind much. Give me a place to swim and I can deal….I love summer! the heat, the warm rains, the days of fun in the sun and ice cream! all my favorite things as a kid have not yet left me….Thankfully! 😀

Rt 66 IconThe Blue Whale was a swimming hole from days gone by that is now an icon along Rt 66 in Catoosa, OK.

Blue Hole is located in Salina, Oklahoma…I  have yet to visit here but I hear a lot of good things about it. That makes me curious…

so…How do you cope with summer? Do have a favorite “swimming hole”??
