Swimming Time Again

The swimming season has begun with gusto in our corner of the world this summer.

The porch thermometer stated it was 113 degrees in the sun this afternoon.

The humidity is on the rise, and this forecast is predicted for the rest of the week.

It is officially summer, so this heat is expected.

Thank goodness we have the lake that is about 7 miles from the house.

$10 gets us a season pass, which is quite a deal considering how much we go.

5:00 pm seems to be the best time to hit it - most people have left to go home and prepare dinner.

The water is just great - a wee bit chilly at first, but so grand once you're in.

A few laps back and forth with the flippers for extra resistance and of course, speed.

We plan to go each day for exercise and enjoyment.

Life is good!


  1. YAY! I put in a pool about 10 years ago, and I swear, it was the best thing I ever did. I try to limit it to a few hours a day. I don't want to burn. Have a great one!

  2. HEAVEN... a slice of heaven...enjoy...!!!!
