oh my godness. i came across this picture of a hidden little place my kids loved to go. it was in the woods near our house. they would take the golf cart or ride their bikes. i would see them pack up funny picnics of pickles and saltines. tote blankets and beach towels, charlie always in tow.
they called it 'paddle pond' because it was shaped like a paddle. when i see it, i think snakes. but what a sweet memory hearing them talk about their paddle pond.
