I saw this and immediately thought of you folks.

A swimming pool made to incorporate nature and provide both a habitat and a place to cool off in the summer. Seems pretty spiffy to me.

Paul had a podcast where they talked about natural swimming pools. I think they might have talked about this guy's DVD! The video looks very familiar to me.

I've wanted one of these for ages. Maybe we'll have one here in Portland.

Thanks Will! I first read about these in an old Mother Earth News and have wanted to build one ever since. Maybe some day soon..

Not sure if this is the article I read but it looks really good. http://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/natural-swimming-pool-zmaz02aszgoe.aspx#axzz3754BgSnF

Would love to seem more on this topic.
 
Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
