The temp hasn’t been below 90 in D.C. for several days and for the first time I am missing the pool from my old condo building. I took for granted the convenience of just strolling down the hall and out to the pool for a bit of relief from the heat. Now that we’re home owners the only water source outside the door is the sprinklers. The idea has crossed my mind to return to my childhood ways and start running through them, but I think the neighbors have reached their limit on our eccentricities (seeing as we had a dunk tank in the driveway for our last party). If only one of these amazing pools were right outside my door. Could be a little chilly in Australia this time of year, but heading to Fiji, Italy or Madeira for a dip would suit me just fine.
