River bathing in Montseny

It was hot today – around 28 C which doesn’t seem much but in the sun you felt the heat.
So what with the temperature and the fact that it was Sunday we headed for the hills rather than the beach. There are mountain pools for bathing on the wooded slopes of Montseny

The best ones are near the Piscines de Montseny but they get very busy at the weekend and you need to walk a long way along a rocky path to arrive at the biggest and best pool. And even that can get crowded.
So we went to a place on the Riu Tordera – more hidden – less well known

It is lovely to walk along the cool wooded paths, searching for wild strawberries, smelling the herbs that grow along the way.
As I dipped my toe into the icy water I saw a snake – it had zigzags on its back. Pep was sure the water snakes are harmless. But it made me pause before advancing further.
Later we saw another swimming across the water – in its element.
Here is another water spirit – soaking away the cares of the week in this beautiful place.

  1. I thought for sure with a title that included, “River Bathing” that there would be some more naked shots so I rushed right over….I guess you could count Bonnie as being in her birthday suit. It is 27 here right now with a humidex of 32. We spent the afternoon sunscreened and poolside and I didn’t even mind the frigid temperature in the pool itself (imagine bathing in water straight from the garden hose, make that a Canadian harden hose). I am lapping this up, thoroughly enjoying the warmth, the sweating, the bare feet. This is my time of year!

  2. Oh sorry about the lack of naked men in this one! They must have swum out of the frame as I clicked.
    Cold water – yes it is!
    And Bonnie would love to take Chuck there one day

    K xx
