Swimming hole fun times

Jumping or diving into the 12 foot wide hole of Jacob's well makes this swimming hole a bit different.  The limestone wall has 3 tiers, here is Z jumping from the ~3ft shelf. He chose not to join me from top (10ft) shelf, sensible lad.  The water is cool and refreshing as the artesian spring spills forth fresh aquifer water from 120 meters down.  Most of this is sloping down progressively deeper chambers, but the "bottom" of the surface section is around 18 meters. At first Z didn't want to jump but by the time we left I could hardly tear him away.  Now to figure out the next stop on our water hole tour of Tejas.
