Poolish Pleasures (175/365)

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air…”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist, 1803-1882)

TIME: 2:00 PM
PLACE:  Millstadt Pool
SUBJECT:  Monkeyboy

Our field trip this week was swimming.  We went to the Millstadt pool with my sister and her kids.  My sister-in-law and nephew joined us shortly after we arrived.  They have a wading pool area for the little kids, however it was closed today due to an "incident", so everyone was in the main pool.  In the "deep end" with the diving board, they rotate between letting people jump off the diving board and letting people swim in the area.  This is MB jumping off the side during the swimming time.  The kids had a good time - even though we forgot our towels at home! Doh!  I made sure that tons of sunscreen was liberally applied before we ventured out into the sun.  Around 3pm, dark clouds and thunder rolled in...closing the pool for the day.

Fortunately, it's been so warm in your part of the world that you were likely dry within seconds!
