good to get away from the rat race, and to find your zen. swimming holes - be careful as it can be slippery and have turtles swimming. nice little waterfall. trees all round. good for picnic and play around. great for everyone of all age.

Took visiting family from the UK here and everyone loved it from the oldies to the kids. All were desperate to fit another visit here in before heading back to the cold.
