Today is the second day that I actually swam as part of my morning walk! Yeah! It is so great that I thought I would show you what the pool looks like.
I learned yesterday that the real name of this kind of pool is "Infinity Edge" because the edge is designed to look like it goes on forever. In this shot the edge really isn't done justice. From inside the pool, it looks like the pool just joins the lake beyond those trees.
There is a little shade structure. That is my bright green bag on the table.
On the other side of the pool is the bathroom house and the pathway to the "spa!"
This is the "spa." I haven't used it but I like looking over the edge of the pool to see what is happening down there. Of course, since I am the only person swimming at this hour of the day - nothing is ever happening down there!
I don't have a good picture but, there are a lot of "Knock-out Roses" planted around the pool and this morning while I was relaxing before heading home, I saw my very first Texas Hummingbird visiting the roses! It was neat!
Mom and I are having a discussion (via IM) about if I should start putting hummingbird feeders out to see if the little birds would visit my house. I don't know . . .
Now an interesting question. After swimming (and walking home and watering the flowers) I rinse my swimming suit to get the chlorine out. However, our water is heavily chlorinated so . . . is the rinsing doing any good?
Voice Update: A bit rocky but I am back on track with my reading (the exercises still need a bit of a "goose" to get them back on track). I am into 2 Kings now and cruising!
