This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt is a photo of a footbridge in Mosman Bay on the north shore of Sydney Harbor. People stopping to chat, some boaters, and a dog bring life to the scene.

Where my great-aunt Violetta Davis and her friends were swimming that day is not easy to determine since she didn’t bother to identify the Who, What, Where, When or Why.
A favorite swimming hole for those living in Shenandoah, Virginia, was “Blue Hole.” But that seems to be the popular name for any spot in the river wide enough and deep enough for people to swim. There were at least three Blue Holes where Violetta and her friends could seek relief from the heat of summer. The closest was in nearby Naked Creek near Elkton, Virginia.

Judging by that rock outcropping in both pictures, I think they were right here in Naked Creek bringing life to the otherwise quiet swimming hole.
