I just want to break out in Hemingway when I see pics like this. The sea is so inviting!

Now - the name of the place - I can see that would bring up smiles and fun jokes. Much like one of the huge rapids that eats rafts at higher water levels. The guides named it after my brother - Dave's Dirty Hole - since he kept falling into it over and over and over again. Of course we don't say that in front of the guests!

Yes, best left unsaid. Alas, I don't know the etymology of Daddyhole.

That is so funny, I loved the photo of K there!

An amusing name.

'Daddy' is an old Devonian term forthe devil who locals thought used to reside in a cave at the base of the cliff.
