Number 116 on my adventure list was to go swimming next to a waterfall. I have always loved waterfalls (but really, who doesn’t?) When I was a kid, one of my favorite movies was Behind the Waterfall. I won’t spoil it for you, but there is something magical hidden behind the falls in this film. When I think of waterfalls now, I still think of magic. That’s probably why this one ended up on my list.
Living in the midwest, I don’t get the chance to see very many waterfalls. But in January, I found myself at this enchanting little spot in New Zealand.
This swimming hole is on my brother-in-law and his fiance’s property. The privacy and seclusion of this spot just adds to the charm.
Although the water was a little cold, and I was a little afraid of potential eels lurking about, it was definitely worth it to jump in. This was one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever seen.
We didn’t find anything mysterious behind the waterfall.
But there’s always next time.
