Today I went to Gardom Lake with the Shuswaps Kids Club. It was my first time there. It is an awesome lake. It's a pretty big lake. It has three docks. I saw kids jumping off them, like wild.(There are some beautiful photos of Gardon Lake by a local photographer at the following URL: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/25001948)
At Gardom Lake, some people say there are leeches but I am not sure exactly. They said to swim in the water but stay out of the swampy areas.
My, there was a lot of duck poops (not dog, duck).
If you go there, I hope you have a lot of fun swimming.
