The Pond

My sister and I took the kids to the pond in South Berwick for a swim today. I don't know the name of the pond or even the name of the street that gets you there, but I know how to get there. The bottom is clay, not rock, and it doesn't get too deep too quick, so it's a nice place to swim. There's a small island with a rope swing in the middle of the pond, but the kids are still too little for us all to swim out there. Some people paddle out on floats and some people bring canoes and kayaks.
The pond a very mellow spot. We said we'd stay for an hour, but the kids were having a good time in the water and my sister and I were enjoying the rare chance to have an uninterrupted conversation, so we stayed for an hour and a half.
