When all the kids were at home and working in the field in the hot summer, after dinner when all had rested, my husband, would say, “Who wants to go cool off in Coldwater River?” No one objected. Coldwater River received its right name. That water was ice cold.
We all loaded in the old pickup truck and were on our way. We had a nice place to swim down below the bridge. Kids and adults in the community found out about the swimming place. Some boys tied a rope to a tree limb and would swing out into the river and drop in the water.
I remember one Saturday afternoon a bunch of kids and parents went for a swim. There were so many, I was afraid someone would drown. One boy almost did. I was standing on the bank and saw what was happening. I was hollering and clapping my hands for someone to help him. He was going under the second time before someone realized what was happening. That broke up the swimming for the day.
Carey Chapel Baptist Church held baptism services in Coldwater River. I was baptized and so was my husband and others also. The water looks awful now. Every time I pass the river, I look out over the water and reminisce.
What a good time we all had swimming in Coldwater River.
