the river, making it more than welcoming for persons looking for a an enticing body of water in which to splash.

"As a Rastaman, mi know a little thing about spiritual healing wid water and me always really need a space," he said.
Chambers' pool is located a stone's throw from the more popular Cane River Falls.
"Wah really gave mi this bright idea to do this project is when mi and mi cousin a walk a scout the river and we buck up here so," he said.
Since creating the pool, which is filled with sparking turquoise river water, Chambers has welcomed scores of persons who pay him $100 each for an opportunity to splash.
"People like scenic places, enuh, so the rocks right now in the pool make a good place for picture taking," he said.
