Winter Outside... SUMMER Inside!

Saturday. January 15, 2011 at the Huntington Y:

"Oh the weather outside is frightful... but the pool is so delightful... and so long as we're going to swim (inside), let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

OK, so actually the weather today wasn't so frightful at all. In fact, it felt almost balmy walking out of the Y -- if you can call 25 degrees balmy. But with no wind and a bright blue sky overhead, it really didn't feel bad at all. Looking at the mounds of snow everywhere... well, that's an entirely different issue! So my feeling is that one "snow-filled" picture (above) is more than enough. Let your eyes wander down to pictures from Norton Pool -- like a little time machine to Summer!

Margot, Don, Paul and Sal line up in swim-speed order. 

What are Harry and Margot so happy about? I'm guessing it's because the workout has been over for about 20 minutes already and this is just "cool down" and "fun swim" time. In my book, the yardage still counts!

Joe makes sure to stay hydrated. 

 The water was so warm and blue, Sal thought he was in Hawaii!

Ahh, a boy and his kickboard!
