They say you shouldn’t swim in the James when it’s high and muddy because of polluted runoff from upstream (ag runoff is especially lovely), but with a couple of these floating around, people could go out and swim to their hearts content. I’m thinking Rockett’s Landing could invest in one. Or maybe Chesterfield County could put one in off of Robious Landing Park. Huguenot Flatwater seems like a good candidate for one, too.

And imagine if you owned riverfront property? Why dig a hole in your yard when you can just float a pool on the river?

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
