|Inside Looking Out ~ October 15, 2019|
A mellow indoor swim with my friend & swimming buddy Nikki.
|Outside Looking In ~ October 2018|
Try to remember the kind of October when pools
were blue and full and oh so mellow!
Two years ago, I couldn't believe my good fortune,
to be swimming in an outdoor pool in Indiana, right up
until mid - October! The next year -- not quite so lucky --
the outdoor season concluded in mid - September; and this year,
a crushing blow -- both pools closed on the last day of August.
But for one brief, shining season, we really
did swim outside on every warm October day!
|Admiring the Poolside Plantings |
I love the way these blossoms start out white, then turn pink!
| I love this view when I'm leaving the outdoor pool|
(via an attached indoor lobby)
and in front of me, I see the pool behind me,
reflected in the glass doors leading into a hair salon
(that's why all the chairs).
Not exactly captured as I had envisioned, but
still, an image of summer to recall the fleeting season.
