To each their own...

There are places I wouldn't swim; the Patapsco, Back River, to name a few...Hart & Miller Island and North I think is safe. I wouldn't swim in most waters on the bay with an open wound or after a hard rain.

I spent many a summer as a kid on the bay, swam a lot and I seem OK...then again? LOL
